Mauer has 4 RBIs to lead Twins over Orioles, 6-4

BALTIMORE (AP) Joe Mauer drove in four runs, Phil Hughes held Baltimore without an earned run over eight innings and the Minnesota Twins beat the Orioles 6-4 Monday to avoid a four-game sweep.

Nelson Cruz hit his major-league leading 36th home run and Nick Hundley had a three-run shot for the AL East-leading Orioles, who lost for only the second time in eight games.

Mauer tripled in two runs in the sixth inning and added a two-run single in the eighth to put Minnesota ahead for good.
