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

BALTIMORE (AP) The Minnesota Twins were counting on their best pitcher to pull the team out of its latest funk, and Phil Hughes delivered.

Hughes held Baltimore without an earned run over eight innings, Joe Mauer had four RBIs and the Twins won 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 Orioles, whose lead in the AL East over the idle New York Yankees slipped to 8 1/2 games.
