The Tigers got on the board with a two-run double from Prince Fielder in the first inning.
The Twins' Chris Parmelee hit a solo shot in the top of the fifth to make it 2-1. In the bottom of the fifth, Twins starter Brian Duensing took a liner in the ankle from Alex Avila and had to leave the game, replaced by Kyle Waldrop.
Miguel Cabrera hit a 429-foot solo home run off Waldrop over the fence in right-center to put Detroit up two in the sixth.
