Twins Come Back From 3 Down To Beat Tigers, 4-3

Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) - Delmon Young's RBI single in the seventh put Minnesota ahead for good, and the Twins rallied with two two-run innings to down Detroit, 4-3, and maintain a four-game lead in the AL Central.

Young finished 2-for-4 for the Twins, who have won four of five to maintain their division lead over Chicago, which beat Cleveland earlier Tuesday. Danny Valencia added three hits and an RBI, while Michael Cuddyer drove in two in the victory.

Matt Guerrier (3-7) earned the win for retiring the final out of the seventh after relieving Brian Duensing, who gave up three unearned runs, nine hits and a walk in 6 2/3 frames.

Matt Capps earned his seventh save with the Twins.

Casper Wells recorded a career-high three hits and scored once for the Tigers, who lost for the third time in four games. Jhonny Peralta also had three hits and drove in a run in defeat.

Armando Galarraga was in line for the win after allowing two runs on eight hits in six innings, but Phil Coke (7-4) gave up two runs in two-thirds of an inning to receive the loss.
