Mauer hits 1st spring homer, Twins beat Phillies

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) Joe Mauer isn't known for his pull-side power, but that could change this season.

The three-time AL batting champion connected for his first home run of the spring and the Minnesota Twins beat the Philadelphia Phillies 7-1 Saturday.

Mauer hit a two-run drive to right field. He has spent extra time working off a tee with hitting coach Tom Brunansky, often focusing on getting the lefty-hitting Mauer to pull the ball hard to right.
