Mauer, Dozier HR, Correia pitches Twins over O’s
Question of the Day
Mauer entered the game batting .136 with runners in scoring position, but had three hits and four RBIs. His three-run shot in the seventh off reliever Brad Brach to break open the game.
“You can go back and make us look as bad as you want to and then I can throw more numbers at you and make us look better,” manager Ron Gardenhire said. “But yes, lately we have been struggling, but we’re facing pretty good pitching. We went through a little bit of a dry spell, but I’ll take my chances.”
“We’re still being aggressive, we lost that in the past couple of days,” Dozier said. “We let a lot of fastballs go by, especially with men in scoring position and we’re not that type of team and that’s not what we’re taught.”
“I was able to get ahead in the count a lot of times,” Chen said through a translator. “I tried to make a good pitch to get hitters out and I couldn’t do it like in my previous outing. So I was kind of having trouble.”
Correia walked none, struck out three and retired 13 of his final 14 batters. Casey Fien and Jared Burton combined for two innings of scoreless relief.
“Like I’ve always said, that’s what I’m here to do,” Correia said. “I felt like I’ve thrown some games where I’ve had a good chance to win a game and to go a month without getting one is hard, it just puts more pressure on you every time you go out there so it’s nice to get that first one.”
Adam Jones scored Baltimore’s only run in the second after reaching base despite striking out. He fanned, but the wild pitch got past catcher Kurt Suzuki, allowing Jones to make it to first. J.J. Hardy’s single tied it at 1.
