Detroit Tigers vs. Minnesota Twins

Twins hope Kyle Gibson can extend their winning streak to six

Twins hope Kyle Gibson can extend their winning streak to six

The Tigers scored one run in the seventh and then three runs in the eighth to go into the ninth inning down just one.

The Minnesota Twins extended their winning streak to six games after knocking off the Detroit Tigers 9-4 Friday night. The red hot Twins had won eight of ten before their pitching was hammered Saturday in a 12-11 defeat at the Detroit Tigers. Mikie Mahtook singled against Belisle (0-2) starting the bottom half and Upton drove a high fastball into the left-field seats.

It was a wasted opportunity for the Twins, who rallied from a 5-0 deficit, then gave away an 11-6 lead. Detroit starter Jordan Zimmermann was tagged for seven runs on eight hits through 3.1 innings pitched while Edward Mujica allowed three runs in two frames.

Joe Mauer's three-run double and Eddie Rosario's two-run homer, a 445-foot drive over the out-of-town scoreboard in right-centerfield, tied the score in the third. Castellanos has struggled badly at third base, and the Tigers recently acquired highly regarded third-base prospect Jeimer Candelario in a trade with the Chicago Cubs.

RHP Ervin Santana (12-7) is to start Sunday's series finale for the Twins. He is 5-1 with a 3.52 ERA against the Twins, the only major-league team he has beaten more than twice.

I think Minnesota has an edge on hill and the team really has to win after Saturday's bad loss...
