Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Placido Polanco and Jeff Mathis each hit two-run homers to help lift the Miami Marlins over the Minnesota Twins, 5-3, to complete a two-game sweep at Marlins Park. The homers were the first of the season for both Mathis and Polanco, with Polanco finishing 2-for-4 with two runs scored. Giancarlo Stanton added the other RBI for the Marlins. Kevin Slowey (3-7) pitched three scoreless innings in relief to earn the win, scattering just four hits. Miami has now gone 10 straight games allowing just three runs or fewer, having recorded a 7-3 record during that span. Scott Diamond (5-7) yielded four runs on eight hits while fanning four in five-plus innings for Minnesota. He's given up 17 earned runs in 20 innings over his last four road starts. Joe Mauer went 3-for-5 with a run batted in, while Josh Willingham and Oswaldo Arcia each had an RBI as well for the Twins, who open up a four- game series versus the Kansas City Royals on Thursday.
