According to Elias

Joe Mauer led off the 11th inning with a double and scored moments later on Josh Willingham’s single and the Twins took a 2-1 decision in Kansas City. In a tight game when the offense has to do something to win, there has been none better in recent years than Mauer, who, over the last three seasons, is now batting .365 (50 for 137) in Late-Inning Pressure Situations-those spots in the seventh inning or later in which the score is tied or the team at bat trails by up to three runs (or four runs if there are at least two runners on base). Mauer’s .365 batting average is the best in the big leagues over that stretch among more than 300 players who have had at least 100 at-bats in those situations.
