Detroit Tigers Sweep Minnesota Twins in Three Game Series

The Detroit Tigers continued their domination of the Minnesota Twins tonight, beating them 4-2.  Rick Porcello got into some trouble in the 7th inning, but the bullpen managed to keep the Twins off the scoreboard the rest of the way for the Tiger win. 

The Tigers have now beaten Minnesota 9 straight times dating back to last season.  They’ll face the Twins 13 more times before this season is over, and most likely Minnesota will be in a better position to take some revenge.  Then again, maybe not.

Miguel Cabrera had the big hit of the night for the Tigers, blasting a 3-run homer in the 3rd to put the Tigers up 4-0.

Joaquin Benoit pitched a scoreless 8th, and  closer Jose Valverde put a couple of runners on before retiring the Twins for his 14th save.

The Tigers are now 29-26 and in second place in the A.L. Central division, 5 games behind Cleveland.  Detroit has an off day tomorrow before heading to Chicago Friday to open a road trip with three games against the White Sox, then three in Texas against the Rangers.  Detroit has stunk it up on the road this season, now would be a good time to reverse that trend.
