The Twins got a big at-bat from center fielder Lewin Diaz. For the game, Diaz was 1 for 4 with a home run, while adding 2 RBI and scoring once. In the top of the seventh, with a runner on 2nd, he stroked a 2-run home run. His 1st home run of the season gave Minnesota a 6-4 lead.

"Win or lose, we pick each other up in this clubhouse," Diaz told the Minnesota Observer.

The Twins, now 6-2, have been on a roll in the early going.
