Twins continue strong start to season with 11-1 romp over Miami


Lynne Sladky, Associated Press

Tyler Mahle continued the Twins streak of strong starting pitching with seven strikeouts and one earned run allowed over five innings against the Marlins.

They opened the retractable roof on a rare occasion at Miami's tropical loanDepot Park - and it poured homers and runs in the Twins' 11-1 victory over the Marlins.

Undefeated after a three-game sweep to start the season at Kansas City, the Twins remained so Monday after they smacked four home runs, received more stingy starting pitching - this time from remade Tyler Mahle - and again ran the bases displaying the kind of baseball manager Rocco Baldelli calls "glorious."

They also won on a night when Marlins second baseman Luis Arraez and Twins starting pitcher Pablo López watched their former teams for the first time since a January trade swapped the 2022 American League batting champion for the Twins' starting pitcher on opening day.
