Minnesota Twins Do It Again, Defeat Detroit
Will the real Minnesota Twins please stand up? The Twins that have appeared in Detroit over the past two nights obviously are not the real Twins. The Twins have been dominant over the playoff-bound Detroit and the Twins recent winning ways have kept Detroit from clinching the division crown.
The Twins put 12 runs across the board while the Tigers could only scratch together three. Eduardo Escobar out produced the Tigers as a whole. Escobar had a career high six, SIX, RBI on Saturday night. Escobar finished the night 4-for-5 with a pair of RBI singles and a three-run home run.
Minnesota had one huge big inning that put the Tigers away. The Twins scored six runs in the fifth with none of the hits being larger than a single.
The 90-lossers capped it off with a four-run eighth inning via a Brian Dozier solo homer and the big shot from Escobar.
It was a tough outing for Kyle Lobstein. Lobstein lasted 4.2 innings and surrendered six runs in his outing. Robbie Ray was responsible for the four run inning.
Ricky Nolasco put in an acceptable start in his last outing of the year. Nolasco went six innings while surrendering only two runs.
