In his 14-year career, Joe Mauer has won three batting titles, three Gold Gloves and an MVP Award. Yet Joe Mauer has never hit a walk-off home run until this blast in the bottom of the ninth on Friday night.

It was also Mauer's second home run of the season as the Twins won 4-3 over the Boston Red Sox.

Closer Brandon Kintzler blew a two-run lead in the top of the ninth inning , spoiling Phil Hughes' chance at his fifth win of the season.

Eddie Rosario extended his career-best hitting streak to 15 games on Friday collecting two hits.

Game two of the series is set for Saturday with first pitch at 1:10 p.m.
