Joe Mauer knocked out a first-inning homer off Doug Fister, propelling the Twins to a 3-2 victory in Detroit. Less than 20 hours earlier, Mauer’s one-out, ninth-inning single had broken up a potential no-hitter by Anibal Sanchez. You have to go back 44 years to find the last time that a major-league player broke up a no-hitter in the ninth inning in one game, and then hit a first-inning home run in his next game. And the Tigers were the victims then, too. On May 31, 1969, Detroit’s Joe Sparma took a no-hitter into the ninth inning at Seattle, but the Pilots’ Don Mincher spoiled things with a one-out double; Sparma finished with a one-hitter, winning the game, 3-2. The next day, Mincher’s two-run, first-inning homer off Earl Wilson helped the Pilots win, 8-7.
