Brandon Inge Walks Off Tigers To 8th Straight Victory

Detroit, MI (Sports Network) – Brandon Inge hit a two-out solo homer in the ninth inning Saturday to lift the Detroit Tigers to a 3-2 win over the Minnesota Twins.

After Alex Avila grounded out and Jhonny Peralta was retired on a fly ball, Inge hit a 2-1 offering from Glen Perkins (4-4) over the left field wall to give Detroit two straight wins to open this three-game series.

Wilson Betemit also had a solo homer for the AL Central-leading Tigers, who have won eight in a row overall.

Joe Mauer homered and had two hits for the Twins, who have lost seven of their last eight and fell to 4-16 in their last 20.
