A tight one.
Twins 3, Tigers 2
After Sanchez rolled by the Twins last night, it was time for a close game at Comerica Park and the Twins got to Doug Fister (5-2, 61.2 IP, 3.65 ERA, 2.87 FIP, 1.9 WAR) for 3 first inning runs before he shut them down the rest of the way to finish with 7 innings, 8 hits, 3 R, 1 BB, 1 HBP, and 8 Ks thanks to better use of his curveball. Hunter doubled in a run in the 5th and Peralta homered in the 6th to close the gap to 3-2 entering the late innings, but the Tigers would get no closer. The loss drops the Tigers to 27-20 on the season, but they will try to take the series tomorrow with Max Scherzer (6-0, 62.1 IP, 3.61 ERA, 2.36 FIP, 2.3 WAR) on the mound.
The Moment: Fister gets a big double play to escape trouble in the 3rd.
