Chris Herrmann, making an emergency start behind the plate for expectant father Joe Mauer, hit his first career grand slam in a seven-run 10th inning that sent the Minnesota Twins past the Los Angeles Angels 10-3 on Tuesday night.
Ryan Doumit snapped a 3-all tie in the 10th with an RBI double against Angels closer Ernesto Frieri (0-2). Herrmann followed a one-out intentional walk to Clete Thomas with his second big league homer and Minnesota's first grand slam since Mauer's shot off Kansas City's Luke Hochevar last Sept. 1.
Twins No. 9 hitter Pedro Florimon capped the rally with his sixth homer, a two-run shot against Billy Buckner. Florimon also had an RBI groundout in the seventh.
Albert Pujols and Mark Trumbo homered for Los Angeles.
Mauer was scratched just before gametime and left the team to be with his wife, Maddie, who went into labor with twins. As a result, Herrmann made his seventh start at catcher in the majors and fourth this season.
