Associated Press Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS — Kevin Slowey pitched eight sparkling innings, Joe Mauer had three hits and the Minnesota Twins beat the Seattle Mariners 4-0 on Saturday night for their seventh consecutive win.

Delmon Young added two hits and two RBIs, including a run-scoring triple in Minnesota’s three-run first.

Felix Hernandez pitched seven innings for the Mariners, yielding three runs and seven hits.

Seattle has lost six straight and its 6-22 record for July matched the franchise record for losses in a month, set by the 1977 expansion team in August.

Slowey allowed three hits, tying a season low, and struck out five.
