Tigers Beat Twins Again

In any other year, this was a game that Minnesota would have found a way to win against the Tigers.  The injury-riddled Twins are the worst team in baseball this year, and let the Tigers come from behind multiple times to eventually win 8-7. 

Max Scherzer gave up 7 runs for the second straight game he pitched in, but this time his team came back to win.  The Tiger bullpen did a good job again, holding the Twins at bay while the Tigers forged a comeback.  Charlie Furbush, Al Alburquerque and Joquin Benoit held the Twins scoreless after Scherzer departed.  Albruquerque was credited with the win (his 3rd of the season) and Benoit pitched out of trouble in the 9th to pick up his 2nd save. 

Every Tiger hitter except Miguel Cabrera had at least one hit (Cabrera was walked 3 times), and the tying and winning runs came home on sacrafice flies.  Brennan Boesch drove home the game winner in the 8th.  Danny Worth led off the inning with a base hit and ended up scoring the winning run.  Worth was just called up from Toledo after the team traded Sizemore to the A’s.

The Tigers have a chance to sweep the Twins tomorrow night, Rick Porcello will try to bounce back from a rough outing against the Red Sox.  7:05 first pitch.  The Tigers are two games above .500 at 28-26, they trail first-place Cleveland by five games.  The Twins have the worst record in the Major Leagues, at 17-36.  The Tigers need to kick em’ when they’re down.
