Ozuna, Marlins blast Twins 10-3 to avoid sweep
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Marcell Ozuna had four hits and three RBIs, and the Miami Marlins broke open the game with a seven-run seventh inning to beat the Minnesota Twins 10-3 on Thursday night.
Chris Johnson hit a pinch-hit, two-run homer in the seventh and the Marlins bounced back in a big way after dropping the first two games of the series to the lowly Twins. Tom Koehler (4-6) gave up two runs on four hits and struck out six in six innings.
Robbie Grossman hit a two-run double for the Twins (18-41). Ervin Santana (1-6) gave up five runs on nine hits in 6 1/3 innings and Minnesota's bullpen was bludgeoned in the seventh.
Twins right-hander Phil Hughes had to be helped off the field in the ninth inning after taking a line drive off the bat of J.T. Realmuto off of his left knee.
