DETROIT, Michigan ---

The Detroit Tigers won their 3rd game in a row in come back fashion as they defeated the Minnesota Twins 7-6 tonight at Comerica Park.

Miguel Cabrera continued his phenomenal home run streak by hitting one out in the 1st inning off Scott Diamond. Miggy has 6 home runs over the past 4 games. He finished 2 for 3 with 3 RBI on the evening. After falling behind 5-2, Detroit would rally back with 1 in the 5th, 3 runs in the 7th, and 1 more in the 8th to pull ahead 7-6. That would be the final tonight.

Rick Porcello was roughed up by Minnesota, allowing 10 hits and 5 runs over 5 innings of work. However, the bullpen came in and got the job done in the later innings to preserve the victory.

Anibal Sanchez takes the mound tomorrow for the Tigers as they look to extend their winning streak to 4 games! Go Tigers!!

  1. Avila has been absolutely terrible. I'd rather have him than Avila at this point.

  2. Optional major-league waivers are required when optioning a player who is more than three calendar years removed from his first appearance on a major-league roster. This procedure allows a club to send a player to the minor leagues while keeping him on the 40-man roster. Because optional waivers are revocable, players usually clear in this scenario. In the unlikely event a player is claimed, his club may not option him to the minor leagues, and any subsequent waiver request during the same period becomes irrevocable.
