One team has something to play for, one team does not. Shockingly, the team that has something to play for won on Thursday evening. Okay, that’s not a shock at all.

The Detroit Tigers took Trevor May deep twice early and the Minnesota Twins could never recover from it. Victor Martinez hit a two-run blast in the first and Miguel Cabrera added a solo shot in the fourth to give the Tigers all the runs they would need.

Joe Mauer hit a two-run double in the fifth, but those were the only runs that the Twins could push across the Detroit plate. Rajai Davis, remember when he was rumored to be becoming a Twin before the season, hit an RBI double himself in the seventh to give the Tigers a final lead of 4-2.

Trevor May lasted six innings for the Twins giving up three runs on five hits while striking out seven. May ends his major league stint this year with a 3-6 record and a 7.88 ERA.

Max Scherzer toed the rubber for Detroit on Thursday. Scherzer went six innings, gave up two runs while striking out nine. Scherzer ends his regular season at 18-5 with a 3.19 ERA.

Offensive MVP of the night for the Twins goes to Mr. Mauer for the RBI-double. Only Mauer and Oswaldo Arcia went for extra bases in the ballgame.

The boxscore for Thursday night.
