Kevin Pillar singled home pinch-runner Erik Kratz in the bottom of the ninth inning to lift the Toronto Blue Jays to a 5-4 win over the Minnesota Twins in the opener of a three-game series at Rogers Centre.

The Twins erased a 4-2 deficit in the top of the ninth, but Matt Guerrier (0-1) walked the leadoff batter, Dioner Navarro, who was replaced by Kratz.

After Anthony Gose struck out on a failed bunt attempt, Casey Fien took over for Guerrier.

Jose Reyes then lined a single to right field -- his third hit of the game -- and Pillar followed with a blooper to right to score Kratz and end the Blue Jays' two-game skid.
