With three games to go, Twins catcher Joe Mauer has a fourth batting title well within his reach.

Mauer went 3-for-4 in Sunday's loss to the Tigers, raising his average to .323, while the league leader, Detroit's Miguel Cabrera, went 0-for-3 with a walk, falling to .325.

All this came on a day the press had a new question for Mauer: How would he feel about playing third base?
