MINNEAPOLIS -- Brian Dozier doesnt like talking about his power-hitting abilities. Nacer Chadli Jersey . When told his manager referred to him as Minnesotas "igniter" over the past couple of games -- during which he homered on consecutive nights -- the Twins second baseman looked embarrassed. "The igniter? Oh goodness," Dozier said Saturday night after hitting a three-run homer that proved to be the game-winning hit in Minnesotas 4-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners. Then he was told "The Ignitor" was the nickname for Hall of Famer Paul Molitor, the former Twins player and current coach. "Thats pretty cool. . Ill take it," Dozier said with a laugh. So will the Twins. Doziers homer in the fifth inning put Minnesota ahead for good, Samuel Deduno tossed six sharp innings for his first win as the Twins moved a game over .500 -- a rarity in these parts over the past three years. With Minnesota trailing 2-1, Dozier followed consecutive singles by Aaron Hicks and Eduardo Escobar by sending a curveball from Roenis Elias (3-3) into the seats in left field. It was Doziers 11th homer of the season. "Hes our igniter," Gardenhire said. "If we can get the bottom of the order to get on base, and roll it over, hes going to come up with more and more RBI opportunities and thats kind of what were looking for, and tonight he delivered." Dozier had a solo homer on Friday night; Saturday night marked the fifth time in his career he homered in consecutive games. His 20 home runs at Target Field ties him for fourth all-time with former Twins slugger Justin Morneau. He leads the A.L. with 40 runs scored. "My job is to get on base, whether its my hits or anything, on base is my biggest stat," said Dozier, who extended his current hitting streak to a season-high eight games. Michael Saunders had a homer and two RBIs for Seattle. Deduno (1-2) struck out four, allowed two hits and retired 18 of the 23 batters he faced. Both of Seattles runs off Deduno came in the third inning after James Jones triple scored Brad Miller. Jones scored on Saunders sacrifice fly to give the Mariners a one-run lead. But Deduno was otherwise solid, working efficiently through Seattles lineup over the next three innings while Elias struggled with his control. Elias allowed six hits and one walk in seven innings, but he also hit a batter, and had a wild pitch and a balk in the second inning. Elias teammates and manager sounded pleased with his performance, even saying his curveball that Dozier homered on was a good pitch. "I went back right after that inning to check where it was and I thought it was a really good pitch," catcher Mike Zunino said. "(Dozier) just dropped the head on it and was able to elevate it." Seattle pulled to 4-3 in the eighth when Saunders hit a solo homer off Jared Burton. Corey Hart doubled two batters later, but Burton got Kyle Seager swinging to end the threat. Glen Perkins worked the ninth for his 12th save in 14 chances. The Mariners have lost four straight. "Well figure it out. Its a little tough right now," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said. "One thing I pointed out right from the start, winning games at this level is tough. One thing here and one thing there will cause you to lose. Well figure this offence out and well be OK." NOTES: The Twins havent been above .500 since April 27. ... McClendon decided to skip RHP Brandon Maurers turn in the rotation for Seattles upcoming two-game series at Texas. Maurer (1-2) has a 6.00 ERA. . LHP James Paxton (strained back) threw a two-inning simulated game Saturday, and Tijuan Walker (shoulder) threw a bullpen session. Both players may throw more simulated games in Texas. ... Twins bench coach Terry Steinbach missed the game to attend his sons college graduation in Duluth. ... Jones has recorded a hit in all nine of his starts. He drove in his first career run. ... Minnesota goes for the series sweep on Sunday when RHP Ricky Nolasco (2-3) faces Mariners RHP Felix Hernandez (4-1) who is 6-5 in 15 career starts versus the Twins. Vincent Kompany Jersey . Not because it was right, but because referees werent allowed to determine it was wrong. Thibaut Courtois Jersey . Lack made 20 saves for his third shutout of the season as the Canucks blanked the St. Louis Blues 1-0 in the first post-Olympic game for both teams night. http://www.soccerbelgiumfansshop.com/Dries-Mertens-UEFA-European-Belgium-Jersey/ .com) - World No. 1 Rafael Nadal, Wimbledon champion Andy Murray and four-time Australian Open titlist Roger Federer were among Mondays fourth-round winners at Melbourne Park.THE HAGUE, Netherlands - In the biggest challenge yet to Sepp Blatter, Dutch football association leader Michael van Praag entered the FIFA presidential election race on Monday.Van Praag became the first would-be Blatter opponent to announce he has the required nominations from five of FIFAs 209 member federations.Its widely known that Im very worried about FIFA, Van Praag said in a statement. Last June, he told Blatter in Brazil that people tend not to take you very seriously anymore.People link FIFA to corruption and bribery and all kinds of old boys networks, Van Praag told reporters in Sao Paulo last June after he and other senior European football officials confronted Blatter at a UEFA meeting.The Netherlands association said in a statement that Van Praag will send his official candidacy letter along with five declarations of support from unnamed federations to FIFA headquarters on Tuesday. The entry deadline is Thursday, four months ahead of the May 29 ballot.Van Praags campaign was launched after he revealed the plan to his UEFA executive committee colleagues at a meeting in Nyon, Switzerland.Still, UEFA is not formally endorsing Van Praag as its candidate despite its open hostility toward Blatter.There is no candidate of UEFA, as a matter of fact, UEFA general secretary Gianni Infantino said at a post-meeting news conference. What we provide at UEFA is a platform for everyone to express (his) view. It is certainly positive for football that there is more than one candidate.UEFA and its president Michel Platini — who last August opted out of a conttest against his former mentor Blatter — have also encouraged FIFA Vice-President Prince Ali bin al-Hussein of Jordan to stand. Thorgan Hazard Jersey. Prince Ali announced his intention to stand three weeks ago but has not revealed his five supporting nations.However, Van Praag took an apparent swipe at the prince in his statement.For quite some time, I was hoping that another credible challenger would put himself forward, but that simply has not happened, said the former president of four-time European champion Ajax.Other potential candidates include longtime Blatter ally Jerome Champagne, a former FIFA international relations director, and former France player David Ginola.Blatter, who has led FIFA since 1998, is the overwhelming favourite to get a fifth presidential term.The 78-year-old FIFA chief stoked tensions with UEFA in an interview aired by CNN ahead of Platinis board meeting Monday.Blatter goaded UEFA by saying it led opposition to him but they dont have the courage to come in the election fight.The 67-year-old Van Praag, a respected figure whose family led Ajax to dominate European football in the early-1970s, has long been seen as the most likely European to take on Blatter.He has called a news conference Wednesday at the Olympic Stadium, Amsterdam, which was his clubs home in its heyday.One should not confine oneself to words, Van Praag said in the Dutch FA statement, but follow them up with deeds and decisiveness, which is why I now announce my candidacy.___AP Sports Writer Graham Dunbar in Nyon, Switzerland, contributed to this report NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Discount Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Jerseys NFL China NFL Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
