Tigers Vs. Twins Score Update: Detroit Has 4 Errors, Game Tied 6-6 After 2.5 Innings

In fear of being ancient with these gross score updates, I don't know how many I'll do, but after two and a half innings the Tigers are tied with the Minnesota Twins, 6-6.

Thanks to four errors by the Tigers -- Prince Fielder, Ramon Santiago, Ryan Raburn and Miguel Cabrera -- the Twins have six runs, but only two of them are earned. The biggest error was Raburn's in the second, which would have been the third out of the inning and was immediately followed by a Brian Dozier three-run homer.

Luckily, Nick Blackburn got touched up for five straight singles after walking Raburn and gave the Twins' lead away to the Tigers in the home half.

Porcello gave the lead right back in the top of the third, though, allowing a double off the yellow line of the wall in right to Josh Willingham and a one-out single to Ryan Doumit that scored Willingham.

Going into the bottom half of the third, Blackburn has been relieved by Jeff Gray.
