Joe Mauer hit a triple to drive in two runs in the 11th inning to give the Twins a 4-2 win over the Mariners Sunday in Seattle.

The Mariners tied it up in the fourth with two runs. The Mariners' Seth Smith hit his first home run of the season.

The score remained 2-2 through regulation, and Mauer hit a two-run triple in the 11th that sealed the win.
