Tigers 13, Twins 1
The Tigers got a very nice outing from Anibal Sanchez (8 GS, 51 IP, 4.76 ERA, 3.69 FIP) on Thursday, but they didn’t need it. Not even a little bit. Huge days from Gose, Cabrera, Castellanos, and Holaday supplemented contributions from Kinsler and Martinez to basically dominate the Twins on getaway day. They scored in 6 of their 8 innings, include three 3 run innings to lift them to a series victory. The bats shined, Iglesias made a crazy play, and Sanchez cruised. All was right in the world. Shane Greene (7 GS, 42 IP, 4.71 ERA, 3.48 FIP) goes Friday in St. Louis.
The Moment: Cabrera caps a 2-homer day.
