Walters, Mauer Help Twins End 10-Game Losing Streak

Joe Mauer homered and had three hits, helping the Minnesota Twins snap a 10-game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday.

Mauer had already earned the ire of Detroit fans when he broke up Anibal Sanchez's no-hit bid in the ninth inning Friday night. He was booed when came to bat in the first inning Saturday - then booed some more after his solo homer to right field.
 
The Twins scored three runs in the first, and that was enough. P.J. Walters (1-0) went six innings, allowing two runs and eight hits.
 
Four relievers finished, with Glen Perkins pitching the ninth for his ninth save in 10 chances.
 
Detroit's Doug Fister (5-2) allowed three runs and eight hits in seven innings.
