A frustrated Joe Mauer pointed to where Rickie Weeks kneed him in the right leg nearly six hours earlier. "It didn't feel very good," he said. "It's pretty stiff." After winning a 5-4, 15-inning marathon against the Milwaukee Brewers, the Twins catcher had forgotten about the sore hamstring that kept him out of Saturday's lineup. Now it was a bruised right quad he was worried about. "Obviously I was sort of prepared for a little collision," Mauer said, referring to a play at the plate in the second inning. "But he kind of darted in a little bit more than I thought. But coming in hard, that's part of the game."
