MARLINS 5, TWINS 4, 12 INNINGS
Newly acquired Minnesota reliever Sam Dyson blew a three-run lead in the ninth inning, then Harold Ramirez hit a leadoff homer in the 12th to make Miami a winner.
Dyson, acquired from San Francisco on Wednesday, faced four batters and didn’t retire any of them, allowing two walks and two hits before being pulled.
The Marlins tied it with three runs, and Ramirez homered in the 12th, connecting off Cody Stashak (0-1) to avert a three-game sweep. Ramirez also doubled home a run in the second.
Max Kepler led off the game with his 30th homer and Byron Buxton drove in two runs with his 30th double for the Twins.
Jeff Brigham (1-0) earned his first career victory with two perfect innings.
