      Joe Mauer drives in two for Twins

      Twins first baseman Joe Mauer went 2 for 3 with a walk in Tuesday's win over Cincinnati. Mauer added a sacrifice fly and drove in two runs, giving him 39 for the year. Mauer has now hit in five straight games. "He's had a really good trip," Twins manager Paul Molitor said, per MLB.com. "His bat seems fresh. Even his last at-bat he had two strikes and hit a rocket over the right fielder's head. He's rallying the troops and keeping the energy up. I thought it was important for him to push the guys early in the game, because it's an easy night when you're sitting around pregame to come out flat."
