Dobnak got early run support, as Zander Weil hit a solo home run in the second inning and Jake Cave did the same in the third to put the Twins up 2-0. Reese McGuire put the Blue Jays on the board in the third inning with a solo shot.
Minnesota’s Matt Wallner chipped in with an RBI single in the ninth inning.
The Twins maintained a 3-1 advantage into the ninth inning when Toronto’s Kevin Smith hit a two-RBI single off Edwar Colina.
