Joe Mauer was 5-for-7 yesterday, including a game-tying home run in the 10th inning of the Twins 9-8 home loss to the Indians. Mauer is the second player in franchise history to record five hits and an extra-inning homer in one game. Justin Morneau went 5-for-5 with a go-ahead 11th-inning shot at Detroit on July 10, 2008.
Bonus trivia question – Andrew Albers threw the Twins first complete game of the season the other day leaving the Orioles and Astros as the only two teams in MLB in 2013 to not have a complete game. Four native Minnesotans have thrown 10 or more complete games in a season while wearing a Minnesota Twins uniform, can you name them?
