MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Brian Dozier's three-run homer in the fifth inning put Minnesota ahead for good, and Samuel Deduno tossed six sharp innings for his first win as the Twins beat the Seattle Mariners 4-3 on Saturday night.

With Minnesota trailing 2-1, Dozier followed consecutive singles by Aaron Hicks and Eduardo Escobar by sending a curveball from Roenis Elias (3-3) into the seats in left field. It was Dozier's 11th homer of the season.

Michael Saunders had a homer and two RBIs for Seattle.

Deduno (1-2) struck out four, allowed two hits and retired 18 of the 23 batters he faced. Both of Seattle's runs off Deduno came in the third inning after James Jones' triple scored Brad Miller. Jones scored on Saunders' sacrifice fly to give the Mariners a one-run lead.
