Twins starter Kevin Correia pitched 6 2/3 innings but surrendered three home runs for the second straight time. He gave up four earned runs.

Aaron Hicks, Brian Dozier, and Josh Willingham all had RBIs for Minnesota.

The Twins (24-29) and Mariners (24-32) face-off in the rubber match on Sunday at 1:10 p.m.
