Tigers Overcome 5-0 First Inning Hole To Beat Twins

Detroit, MI (Sports Network) – Brandon Inge drove in the game-winner with a single in the bottom of the 13th inning, as the Detroit Tigers outlasted the American League Central champion Minnesota Twins, 11-10, in the second test of a three-game series at Comerica Park.

Miguel Cabrera, Don Kelly, and Alex Avila each homered for the Tigers, who have won three in a row and seven of eight. Detroit had 21 hits.

Starter Jeremy Bonderman gave up seven runs on nine hits over four-plus innings. Daniel Schlereth (1-0) tossed 1 2/3 scoreless frames to pick up the win.

Inge also picked up a dubious distinction during the game, setting the all-time strikeout mark for a Tigers hitter. Inge whiffed three times Saturday, giving him 1,101 for his career in 10 seasons. Lou Whitaker was the previous record-holder with 1,099 in 19 years with the club.

Detroit will close out their home schedule for 2010 with an afternoon matinée against Minnesota.
