Grace is love. But love of a special sort…which is kind to the unkind and generous to the ungrateful and undeserving.

     MIAMI (AP) - Newly acquired Twins reliever Sam Dyson blew a three-run lead in the ninth inning, then Harold Ramirez hit a leadoff homer in the 12th that sent the Miami Marlins over the Twins 5-4 this afternoon.
     The AL Central-leading Twins have been revamping their bullpen after watching a whopping lead over Cleveland dwindle in the last month. Minnesota got reliever Sergio Romo in a trade with Miami over the weekend and acquired Dyson from San Francisco in a deadline-beating deal Wednesday.
     Romo pitched a perfect eighth and turned a 4-1 lead over in the ninth to Dyson, who had a 2.47 ERA in 49 games for the Giants this season. Dyson faced four batters and didn't retire any of them, allowing two walks and two hits before being pulled.
     The Marlins tied it with three runs, and Ramirez homered in the 12th, connecting off Cody Stashak (0-1) to avert a three-game sweep. Ramirez also doubled home a run in the second.
     The walk-off win was the Marlins' third this season, and all have come since July 18.
     Max Kepler led off the game with his 30th homer and Byron Buxton drove in two runs with his 30th double for the Twins. But they struck out 15 times, and went hitless in their final 15 at-bats.
     Minnesota's Michael Pineda allowed one run in six innings and departed for a pinch-hitter after throwing 80 pitches.
     Dyson gave up two walks, a single and an RBI double by Jon Berti. Neil Walker tied the game with a two-run single off Taylor Rogers, but the left-hander struck out Jorge Alfaro and Bryan Holaday with the bases loaded to force extra innings.
     Miami won despite stranding 13 and going 2 for 10 with runners in scoring position.
     Marlins starter Jordan Yamamoto allowed four runs in six innings. Jeff Brigham (1-0) earned his first career victory with two perfect innings, including a 14-pitch showdown with Kepler, who flied out.
     UP NEXT
     Twins: LHP Martin Perez (8-4, 4.38) is scheduled to start Friday when the Twins open a 10-game homestand against Kansas City.


     UNDATED (AP) - Major league batters are on pace to hit 600 more home runs than in any previous season, nearly 10% above the record set two years ago. There were 1,057 home runs in July, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, breaking the previous July record of 961 in 2004.

     A total of 4,478 home runs were hit in 1,621 games through Wednesday, an average of 2.76 per game. Batters are on pace to hit 6,712 home runs, well above the record 6,105 set in 2017 and up 20% from 5,585 last year.

     Milwaukee's Christian Yelich began today leading the major leagues with 36 home runs.

     In other baseball news:

     - The Chicago White Sox have put third baseman Yoan Moncada on the 10-day injured list with a strained right hamstring. The White Sox made the move before Thursday's game with the New York Mets. Outfielder Ryan Cordell was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte. The move was retroactive to Wednesday.

     - Danny Farquhar, who suffered a brain hemorrhage in the Chicago White Sox dugout last season, has rejoined the team as its new minor league pitching instructor. The 32-year-old former reliever will start on Aug. 7 at the club's Double-A affiliate in Birmingham, Alabama. Farquhar had the hemorrhage from a ruptured aneurysm in the dugout on April 20, 2018.

     - Pittsburgh pitcher Keone Kela has been suspended for 10 games, Cincinnati reliever Amir Garrett for eight and Yasiel Puig for three after a furious brawl between the Pirates and Reds. Major League Baseball issued eight suspensions two days after the fight at Great American Ball Park. Three players on each team were suspended, and all of them have elected to appeal. Reds manager David Bell was suspended six games and Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle was penalized two games.



     UNDATED (AP) - Five-time Pro Bowl center Ryan Kalil has surprisingly come out of retirement to join the New York Jets. The 34-year-old Kalil and the Jets agreed to terms on a deal Thursday. He'll need to pass a physical before signing his contract and making it official. Kalil announced at the end of last season that he was retiring from playing football after 12 NFL seasons - all with the Carolina Panthers.

     In other NFL news:

     - Panthers quarterback Cam Newton says he has not fully recovered from offseason shoulder surgery. Newton says uncorking a few 45 yard throws earlier in training camp felt good and provided him with a sigh of relief, but cautioned Thursday that his rehab remains "a work in progress."

     - The Panthers have added a familiar face to the roster, signing safety Tre Boston to a one-year contract. The five-year NFL veteran spent his first three seasons in Carolina. He played for the Arizona Cardinals last season after a year with the Los Angeles Chargers in 2017. He combined for 122 tackles, 17 pass breakups and eight interceptions during those two seasons.

     - Jacksonville Jaguars rookie linebacker Quincy Williams will miss 4-to-6 weeks because of a torn meniscus in his right knee. The team says Williams will have arthroscopic surgery in the coming days. He has an outside shot at returning in time for the Sept. 8 season opener against Kansas City.



     OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma City Thunder waived forward Patrick Patterson today. Patterson spent two seasons with Oklahoma City. He appeared in 145 games and averaged 3.8 points and 2.3 rebounds in 14.7 minutes per game. Patterson originally was expected to be Oklahoma City's starting power forward heading into the 2017-18 season, but the Thunder traded for Carmelo Anthony, moving Patterson to a reserve role. The younger, more athletic Jerami Grant emerged that season and eventually took over the starting job early in the 2018-19 season.



     UNDATED (AP) - The Rangers have bought out the final two seasons of defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk's contract. Shattenkirk played only two seasons after signing a $26.6 million, four-year contract with New York, achieving his childhood dream of playing for the Rangers. He had just seven goals and 44 assists in 119 games. The team will save more than $5 million against the salary cap this season and over $560,000 next season before taking a $1.43 million hit in 2021-22 and 2022-23.

     In other NHL news:

     - Recently retired forward Matt Cullen is sticking with the Pittsburgh Penguins, joining the hockey operations department. The team announced Thursday that Cullen will have a player development role. Cullen retired from the Penguins last month after more than two decades in the NHL. He won three Stanley Cups - with Pittsburgh in 2016 and 2017 and the Carolina Hurricanes in 2006. Cullen scored 266 goals to go with 465 assists and 502 penalty minutes in 1,516 games with eight teams. He also had 19 goals and 39 assists in 132 career playoff games.



     BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - Virginia Tech's Bud Foster says the upcoming football season will be his final as an assistant coach. Foster has been the Hokies' defensive coordinator since 1995. His 33 years on staff makes him the longest tenured assistant coach in the country at the same school. His teams led the nation in total defense in 2005 and again in 2006 and have been among the top five in scoring defense seven times. The 60-year-old Foster will continue to work at the school.



     UNDATED (AP) - The NCAA unveiled a new arm of rules enforcement made up of independent investigators, advocates and decision-makers to handle what it calls complex cases involving serious infractions. Creating a new process for dealing with some infractions cases was one of several recommendations made last year by the Rice Commission on college basketball. The commission concluded the NCAA's traditional investigation and enforcement structure was rife with potential and perceived conflicts of interest.



     INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - IndyCar plans to use hybrid technology to increase horsepower and improve safety. The racing series announced Thursday it will integrate a hybrid powertrain into its cars beginning in 2022. The technology will use braking systems to create energy recovery and will include multi-phase motors, inverters and electric storage devices. The hybrid systems will work in conjunction with the traditional, internal combustion engines built by Honda and Chevrolet to produce more than 900 horsepower.
