MIAMI (AP) Marcell Ozuna drove in two runs and Derek Dietrich homered to help the Miami Marlins to a 4-2 win over the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday night in interleague play. A.J. Ramos (2-2) pitched two scoreless innings in relief and Steve Cishek worked the ninth for his 13th save for the Marlins, who have won four of five. Miami starter Jose Fernandez allowed one run and four hits in five innings. The 20-year-old phenom struck out three and walked three while throwing 94 pitches, 59 for strikes.Fernandez is 2-1 with a 1.67 ERA in five June starts. Minnesota's Justin Morneau appeared to line into a double play to end the eighth, but first baseman Logan Morrison dropped the throw, allowing Joe Mauer to remain on base. Two batters later, Trevor Plouffe took advantage of Morrison's error with an RBI single, scoring Mauer to cut the deficit to 3-2. Ozuna's RBI double in the bottom of the eighth after Morrison doubled pushed the lead to 4-2.Cishek retired the Twins in order in the ninth. Josh Willingham's RBI single in the third opened the scoring for Minnesota. Kevin Correia (6-5) held the Marlins scoreless through five innings before running into trouble in the sixth. After Ed Lucas singled and Giancarlo Stanton walked, Morrison singled to load the bases. Ozuna singled to center, scoring Lucas as center fielder Clete Thomas bobbled the ball, also allowing Stanton to score for a 2-1 lead. Correia allowed two runs and five hits in six innings after beating the Marlins on April 23.Brian Duensing relieved Correia and yielded a home run to Dietrich, his seventh, for a 3-1 advantage. NOTES: Twins RHP Mike Pelfrey was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday retroactive to June 19, but manager Rod Gardenhire believes the break will benefit Pelfrey, who missed last season with Tommy John surgery. "This is probably a good time of the season to take a step back, miss a couple of starts," Gardenhire said. "He told me he's probably 90 percent right now, so believe me, he won't miss much work." ... Minnesota will send LHP Scott Diamond (5-6, 5.27 ERA) to the mound in the Wednesday afternoon finale against RHP Tom Koehler (1-5, 4.65 ERA).
