MARINERS 9, TWINS 6, 10 INNINGS
Dee Gordon scored for Seattle on one of Minnesota’s three errors in the 10th inning.
Gordon opened the 10th with a ground-rule double off Tyler Duffey (1-1). Shed Long walked before the runners advanced on Dylan Moore’s sacrifice.
Mallex Smith followed with a grounder to first baseman C.J. Cron, who tried to get the speedy Gordon at the plate. Twins catcher Mitch Garver was given the error when he was unable to handle the throw.
One out later, Long and Smith scored when third baseman Miguel Sano flubbed Edwin Encarnacion’s grounder. The AL Central-leading Twins finished with five errors in the game.
The Mariners carried a 6-4 lead into the ninth, but Byron Buxton tied it with a two-run homer off Anthony Bass (1-1).
Roenis Elias worked a perfect 10th for his sixth save.
Long hit a three-run drive in the eighth for his first career homer.
