Twins 6, Tigers 2
On Wednesday night, the Tigers offense continued their sputtering streak and the pitching simply wasn’t able to offset the lack of run scoring. Kyle Lobstein (6 GS, 35.1 IP, 4.33 ERA, 3.64 FIP) gave up a 1st inning dinger to Torii Hunter and then got tagged for five runs on five hits and a walk in the 3rd before giving way to the bullpen, who actually managed to shut the door the rest of the way. While the pen gave them a chance to hang in there, the Tigers only cashed in on a pair of runs in the 6th and failed to keep it going in the 7th, allowing the Twins to even the series. The rubber match will be Thursday, with Anibal Sanchez (7 GS, 43 IP, 5.44 ERA, 4.16 FIP) toeing the rubber.
