Ryan Doumit laced a triple to the right-centerfield wall in the bottom of the ninth Saturday, scoring two runners to rally the Twins to a 5-4 victory over the Seattle Mariners.

Seattle closer Tom Wilhelmsen, handed a 4-2 lead thanks to three solo HRs, loaded the bases with three walks to open the ninth. Josh Willingham hit a sacrifice fly to close the gap to one run, and Doumit followed with his first triple of the season to even the three-game series at 1-1.

The Twins had been 1-for-11 with runners in scoring position until Doumit's heroics.

Minnesota appeared headed to its second straight loss to Seattle, and its ninth in the past 12 games against the Mariners at Target Field, until the dramatic rally. Five Seattle pitchers scattered six hits though the first eight innings.

Kevin Correia, who allowed only two home runs in 36 1/3 innings in April, has given up 11 long balls in the 34 innings since, including six in his last two starts. All three he gave up Saturday -- two to Jason Bay and one to Kyle Seager -- were solo shots, helping keep the Twins close enough for a comeback.

Aaron Harang gave up two runs over six innings, one of them unearned.
