LOS ANGELES — Two early errors dug a deep hole for the Dodgers.
One late error by the Minnesota Twins allowed them to come back from a five-run deficit.
With two outs in the ninth inning, Justin Turner drove in Austin Barnes to complete the 6-5, come-from-behind win before the announced crowd of 50,941 at Dodger Stadium.
The Dodgers swept the three-game interleague series to improve the major leagues’ best record to 71-31.
The Dodgers were trailing 5-4 in the eighth inning when Turner drew a leadoff walk against left-hander Taylor Rogers. With one out, Kiké Hernandez delivered a pinch-hit single against Twins closer Brandon Kintzler, sending Turner to third base.
Logan Forsythe flew out to center fielder Zack Granite for the second out. When Hernandez ran most of the way toward second base, Granite not-so-cleverly tried to double him up at first. The only problem: nobody was covering the base. Turner scored easily from third as the ball bounced into the Twins’ dugout, tying the score, 5-5.
In the ninth inning, Barnes led off with a single against Kintzler and went to second on an infield single by Chris Taylor. Both runners moved up on a groundout, before Turner poked a single through the left side of the infield.
The Dodgers have won eight games this year in their final at-bat. They will enjoy an off-day Thursday before hosting the San Francisco Giants for three games beginning Friday.
The Dodgers used all 11 position players on their active roster. All reached base except for first baseman Cody Bellinger.
This win came in spite of a short start by starter Brock Stewart. Minnesota led, 5-0, after four innings. Making his first start of the season, Stewart lasted just 3⅔ innings. All five runs against him were unearned.
Grandal cost Stewart one out with an act of questionable judgment in the third inning. Second baseman Logan Forsythe let one slip through his glove in the third inning on a botched ground ball.
