Twins hit 7 home runs in win over Padres

MLB.com - Wednesday 13th September, 2017

Zack Granite leaps at the wall and makes an unbelievable catch to rob Will Myers of a home run in the top of the 7th inning

Gibson (10-10) scattered four hits over six scoreless innings to earn his fourth win over his last five starts. The right-hander has allowed two or fewer runs in each of those last five outings, which has lowered his ERA to 4.97.

Dozier's dinger: Dozier started the offensive eruption with a leadoff homer off Wood. According to Twins center fielder Zack Granite, who replaced Byron Buxton as a pinch-hitter in the sixth, made a home run-saving catch to rob Wil Myers to lead off the seventh. The ball traveled a projected 406 feet to center, per Statcast-, but Granite made a remarkable leaping grab.

Padres: Right-hander Dinelson Lamet (7-7, 4.32 ERA) will look to continue his strong second half in Wednesday's series finale at 5:10 p.m. PT. Lamet has a 2.55 ERA over his last nine starts dating back to July 23. Last time out, Lamet held St. Louis to two runs over six innings.

Twins: Right-hander Ervin Santana (15-7, 3.45) is set to start the series finale on Wednesday at 7:10 p.m. CT. Santana struggled in his last start, allowing four runs over five innings against the Royals, but still got the win.
