SEATTLE (AP) — Chris Colabello hit his first career home run, a two-run shot in the 13th inning, and the Minnesota Twins beat the Seattle Mariners 3-2 on Friday night.

Mariners starter Felix Hernandez was two outs from a shutout and his first complete game of the season, but Trevor Plouffe's pinch-hit single in the top of the ninth tied it at 1.

Runs were hard to come by for both teams until the Mariners' Yoervis Medina (3-3) entered in the 13th. Aaron Hicks led off with a single and Colabello — playing in his 14th major league game — followed with a two-run homer to right field.

Kendrys Morales led off the bottom of the 13th with his 16th homer, but Glen Perkins closed it out for his 25th save.
