Joey Gallo's three-run home run proved to be the deciding blow for Texas in the top of the third inning. Twins starter Adalberto Mejia lasted just four innings while allowing four runs on seven hits and three walks.
Ervin Santana pitched a complete game to earn his 12th win of the season. The Twins' ace allowed two runs on four hits and one walk while striking out nine. Santana also had a two-run single in the second inning, giving him five runs batted in on the year.
The Twins held a 4-3 lead heading into the bottom of the eighth inning, but Dodgers rookie Cody Bellinger blasted a three-run home run to center field off of reliever Taylor Rogers to give Los Angeles the lead and eventual win.
Garcia, 31, is in his ninth season at the Major League level, with the first eight years spent with the St. Louis Cardinals. Garcia is 4-7 this season with a 4.30 ERA and has a career mark of 66-52 with an ERA of 3.65.
