Mauer powers Twins in rout Tigers

(TSX / STATS) -- DETROIT -- Joe Mauer highlighted a group of four players with two RBIs apiece as the Minnesota Twins improved their lead in the battle for the second American League wild-card spot with a 12-1 victory against the Detroit Tigers on Thursday night.

Byron Buxton, Max Kepler and Jason Castro also had two-RBI nights for Minnesota, which is 2 1/2 games ahead of the Los Angeles Angels. The Texas Rangers would pull into a tie with the Angels with a win against the Seattle Mariners late Thursday night.

Adalberto Mejia was pulled one out shy of lasting long enough to get credit for the victory, which went to Twins' reliever Dillon Gee (3-2) for his 1 1/3 scoreless innings of relief. Mejia struck out five and allowed one run on four hits and a walk in 4 2/3 innings.
