Streaky Tigers Beat Twins

The Tigers played small-ball, long-ball and finally won on a disputed call in defeating the Minnesota Twins 6-5 today.  The Tigers took an early 3-0 lead, then gave it back to Minnesota 5-3.  Victor Martinez hit a two run homer to tie the game 

in the 6th inning at 5-5.  The Tigers won it on a controversial call in the bottom of the 8th when Jhonny Peralta scored on a ground rule double by Alex Avila that was interfered with by a fan.  The umpires ruled that Peralta would have scored on the play, and allowed the run that proved to be the game-winner.  Jose Valverde pitched the 9th,

 and retired the side in order for his 13th save in 13 opportunities.

The win is the second straight for the Tigers, who are now 27-26 and in second place in the American League Central Division, 5 and a half games behind the Cleveland Indians who play at Toronto tonight.

The Tigers and Twins play again tomorrow night in Detroit at 7:05, Max Scherzer gets the pitching start for the Tigers.  Here’s hoping that the hot weather keeps our Tigers on a hot streak for a while!
