The Tigers gave Price early run support in the 1st with RBI singles by J.D Martinez and Nick Castellanos. The Twins responded with 3 runs in their half of the 1st with RBI's for Brian Dozier, Trevor Plouffe, and Kurt Suzuki.
The Tigers responded to take the lead back in the second after an RBI single for Torii Hunter, and RBI double for Miguel Cabrera, who had two doubles on the night and leads the league with 48. After a long first couple of innings, both teams would go scoreless for the next 3.
In the 6th the Twins would jump all over Price and the Tigers' bullpen, scoring 3 runs in the inning to take the lead for good. Danny Santana and Joe Mauer drove in runs with doubles, while Dozier tripled in a run to give the Twins a 6-4 lead. Danny Santana had 2 doubles on the night, and drove in a run with a single in the 8th, along with another Mauer RBI to pad their lead to 8-4.
The Tigers struggled after hitting the ball well the first 2 innings, and it was a baserunning miscue in the 7th that ended what looked to be a Tigers rally. Victor Martinez came up with Hunter and Cabrera in scoring position. Martinez would hit a grounder to 1st that made Cabrera head to 3rd. Little did Cabrera know that Hunter did not go home, which made the former MVP turn around to go back to 2nd and get caught in a pickle. He would eventually get tagged out to end the threat.
Along with the Tigers' loss, the Royals would take down the White 6-2 in Kansas City to cut the Tigers Central division lead to a 1/2 game. Both teams have Thursday off before beginning an important 3-game series Friday night.
