Mauer homers, drives in four as Twins outlast Rays 11-8

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Paul Molitor said Minnesota’s recent 1-8 road trip was one of the worst he’s experienced in a long career in baseball. The Twins’ manager is feeling much better about their homestand.
Joe Mauer homered and drove in four runs, and the Twins held on for a 11-8 win against the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday night.
Jake Cave had three hits and a pair of RBIs, and Robbie Grossman added three hits to help Minnesota win for the eighth time in nine games on its homestand.
“I think we all think this homestand was much needed and it was timely coming off the heels of one of the worst trips I experienced in terms of finding ways to win,” Molitor said.
