MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Joe Mauer wound up with a home run instead of a double after umpires went to video replay, and the Minnesota Twins beat the Milwaukee Brewers 6-3 Monday.

The Twins led 4-3 when Mauer led off the seventh inning against Tom Gorzelanny with a long fly to left field. Mauer stopped at second base, and the umpires went to review the drive.

The ball hit the padding atop the fence and then appeared to strike a back wall, making it a home run. The second base umpire was Angel Hernandez -- he was the chief in Cleveland earlier this month when Hernandez and his crew mistakenly failed to reverse a call on the field and rule a home run.

Milwaukee's Carlos Gomez homered twice.
