ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Scott Kazmir pitched seven strong innings and Alex Gonzalez hit a solo homer off Sidney Ponson, leading the Tampa Bay Devil Rays to a 3-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday night.

Damon Hollins snapped a seventh-inning tie with an RBI single off Ponson (7-9), subject of trade talks between the Orioles and San Diego Padres despite being 0-5 in six starts since last winning on June 18.

Kazmir (5-7) allowed one run and four hits, struck out seven and walked three. Joe Borowski pitched the eighth, and All-Star closer Danys Baez allowed Miguel Tejada's 21st homer in the ninth before striking out Sammy Sosa and pinch-hitter Rafael Palmeiro to earn his 19th save in 25 opportunities.

The NL West-leading Padres are interested in acquiring Ponson in exchange for first baseman Phil Nevin, but had not yet asked the San Diego slugger about waiving a limited no-trade clause in his contract.

DETROIT -- Scott Baker allowed five hits in seven innings and Justin Morneau homered and drove in two runs as Minnesota beat Detroit in the second game of a day-night doubleheader.

Mike Redmond also had two RBIs for Minnesota.

Curtis Granderson's first major league homer broke a seventh-inning tie and led Detroit over Minnesota in the first game.

After the Twins tied it at 1 in the top of the inning, Granderson lined a pitch from Carlos Silva into the right-field stands with two outs in the home half. The rookie outfielder had a nine-game audition with Detroit last September and was called up for the first time this season on Friday.

Sean Douglass (3-0) picked up the win, allowing one run on five hits in seven innings. He walked four and struck out one batter. Fernando Rodney pitched the eighth and Kyle Farnsworth finished for his fourth save in six tries.
