Sanchez hit hard in Tigers loss to Twins

Can the Detroit Tigers bounce back at home tonight when they take on the Minnesota Twins at 6:10PM ET? Then, they trailed 11-6.

The Tigers scored one run in the seventh and then three runs in the eighth to go into the ninth inning down just one. McCann's grand slam in the first put the Tigers on top 5-0. Mikie Mahtook singled against Belisle (0-2) starting the bottom half and Upton drove a high fastball into the left-field seats. Detroit pounded out 13 hits and walked twice with Justin Upton, Jose Iglesias and James McCann each going deep and combining for eight RBI's and six runs on five hits.

The Minnesota Twins extended their winning streak to six games after knocking off the Detroit Tigers 9-4 Friday night. Mauer's sixth home run, to left-center field, was his 16th against Detroit in his career and his five RBIs gave him 114 vs. the Tigers. Berrios had a good start to the year, but has been struggling somewhat.

BLUE JAYS 7, PIRATES 2: Chris Rowley pitched 51/3 innings to win his major league debut, Jose Bautista scored two runs and Toronto won at home. Berrios made two starts against Detroit last season and was ripped for a total of 13 runs - 12 earned - and nine hits in 5 2/3 innings. Zimmermann was not almost as strong at Minnesota on July 22, when he was ripped for five runs on nine hits and four walks in 3 2/3 innings. Joe Mauer padded the lead with a two-run single in the ninth.


Stanton has hit 20 home runs in his last 32 games.

Berrios wasn't particularly sharp in his last outing but still managed to earn the win despite allowing five runs and six hits in five innings against Texas.

Shane Greene (3-2) pitched one inning for the win. The Tigers had lost six of seven before the offense came to life and overcame the pitching Saturday night against the surging Minnesota Twins.

NOTES: Tigers 3B Nicholas Castellanos will begin taking fly balls in right field to see if that's a viable option for 2018, manager Brad Ausmus said. OF JIm Adduci was sent back to the Mud Hens.
