TWINS 4, TIGERS 3
Max Kepler’s two-out, two-run single in the eighth inning lifted AL Central-leading Minnesota.
Trailing 3-2, Minnesota started the eighth with two singles off Buck Farmer (5-6). He retired the next two batters, but Ehire Adrianza’s infield single loaded the bases for Kepler. Matt Hall relieved and Kepler lined his single to center field.
Zack Littell (3-0) got the win and Taylor Rogers worked a perfect ninth for his 22nd save.
Tigers starter Jordan Zimmermann gave up two runs on nine hits in six innings. Twins starter Jake Odorizzi allowed three runs and five hits in five innings. He struck out seven without walking a batter.
Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera hit a solo home run, his 10th, in the first. Adrianza put Minnesota ahead with a homer in the second.
