Mike Fiers's starter continued on a dominant run with six strong innings to start the game, but he allowed an out double to Luis Arraez in the seventh inning before Miguel Sano worked out his second game run to set up the opportunity for Rosario, who returned from a 13-game stint on the injured list Tuesday.

He received a curtain call from 28,432 hands and chants of his name while he ran to his left-field position for the following half-inning.
Rosario's run home marked the first pinch time homer for Twins and also snapped a streak of 10 consecutive long balls for the club without anyone on the base.
It also opened floodgates, while Mitch Garver and CJ Cron followed the solo home running at Lou Trivino in the eighth inning as the twins' offense roared in life against bullpen Oakland.
Twins never seemed to click on a reckless two-game sweep in the hands of Mets to open their current homestand, a scattered series that included three errors, two elapsed balls and nine who have not been recognized as running a result. Rosario personally contributed to an unbeaten win in the left-hand field that led to six unexpected lessons on Wednesday.
He found his redemption instead of quick, and it came when his team needed it after another bad start in the game that saw two errors in the first two innings and rally after the rally was killed by two double play, a pickoff on the second base and a runner that doubles from the third on a line drive.
Kyle Gibson beaten out seven A in over seven consecutive three-run ball, and Taylor Rogers entered the notch of a two-in-one save.
