MINNEAPOLIS — With the Twins looking for a spark, down by a run with two runners on base in the seventh, Joe Mauer was brought in off the bench to pinch-hit against reliever Louis Coleman. Mauer worked the count full, before ripping a fastball for a three-run homer to give the Twins a 5-3 lead they wouldn’t relinquish in a 5-4 win on Friday night at Target Field.
