KANSAS CITY MO- JULY 01 Minnesota Twins center fielder Max Kepler between innings during a MLB game between the Minnesota Twins and the Kansas City Royals

Tigers closer Shane Greene escaped a bases-loaded mess in the top of the ninth inning by striking out Miguel Sano to end the inning, keeping the skinny, one-run deficit.

Joe Mauer homered and drove in five runs as the Twins took an 11-6 lead. This game appeared to be headed toward another one of those ugly, one-sided losses we were accustomed to seeing earlier this season, but a monster third inning put the Twins right back in it.

Belisle (0-2) struck out Ian Kinsler to choke off a three-run rally in the eight but Minnesota's current saves leader - with two - gave up a single to leadoff man Mikie Mahtook in the ninth and then Upton's 22nd home run sailed into the left field seats off a 2-1 fastball.

Justin Upton and the Detroit Tigers exposed a shortcoming the Minnesota Twins will have to address if they hope to be successful in their run at the leaders in the American League Central Division - the bullpen. He gave up six runs on six hits and two walks.

James McCann went 2-for-4 with a grand slam, five RBI and three runs scored in a win over the Twins on Saturday.

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

Christian Hackenberg report card: How'd Jets' QB look vs. Titans?
Alex Tanney replaced Mariota and was sacked by linebacker Julian Stanford on his first play and briefly left the game. The strong-armed passer delivered the ball with good velocity and wasn't helped by a couple of drops.


These two opened the series on Friday night with the Twins picking up a 9-4 win on the road. In the three starts, he's allowed 17 runs and 21 hits in 11 2/3 innings.

Zimmermann wouldn't survive the fourth.

After two relatively easy innings, when he threw 20 strikes out of 25 pitches, he walked No. 9 hitter Jason Castro with one out in the third.

Berrios gave up five runs to Detroit in the first, one on an RBI single by Nicholas Castellanos and four on a grand slam by McCann, his 11th home run and second career slam. It was the fourth home run allowed by Mujica in five innings with the Tigers. He gave up seven runs and eight hits in 3 1/3 innings Saturday.

Miguel Cabrera came out of the game after he singled in the fifth inning, complaining of lower back stiffness. Things would tilt back in the Tigers favor from there on. Everybody in the starting lineup had a multi-hit game other than Jorge Polanco, which was pretty ironic, since Polanco entered the night with five-straight multi-hit games.

Our models project Escobar for a.256 batting average, with 3 home runs, 13 RBI, and 14 runs scored over 128 plate appearances remaining this season.
