Joe Mauer completed a Minnesota rally from a six-run, first-inning deficit, slapping a two-run single up the middle in the seventh to lift the Twins past the Detroit Tigers 7-6 on Sunday for their fifth straight win. A two-out error in the inning by third baseman Carlos Guillen, set up a four-run surge and ruined a strong start by Kenny Rogers.
Matt Guerrier (2-1) earned the victory with two scoreless innings in relief of Boof Bonser, who recovered nicely after the six-run first to complete six innings with five strikeouts and no walks. Joe Nathan picked up the save, his 11th in as many attempts, with a scoreless ninth to give the Twins a sweep of this homestand of five intradivision games. (Read more MLB stories.)
