The Detroit Tigers exploded for four runs in the fifth inning against the Minnesota Twins just before a rain delay halted play in the bottom of the sixth with the Tigers leading the Twins, 6-3.
The Tigers' bats have come alive to the tune of 11 hits to get their six runs, sending Twins starter Carl Pavano to the bullpen after only 4 1/3 innings. Pavano gave up six runs on 10 hits to the Tigers lineup, giving way to reliever Brian Duensing and the Twins' bullpen. It is now in the top of the eighth inning with the same score.
Hopefully the weather continues to behave long enough for the Tigers to close out the game with a win.
