Tigers Vs. Twins: Detroit Pulls Out 8-4 Victory On Road

On Tuesday, the Detroit Tigers won comfortably against the Minnesota Twins on the road, 8-4. The Tigers moved to 62-55 on the season.

Detroit starter Doug Fister gave up four runs over eight innings, but had plenty of offense to back him. He also tallied seven strikeouts and reliever Jose Valverde came on in the ninth for the save.

The Tigers raced out to a fast 4-0 start, scoring a pair of runs in each of the first two innings, but the Twins scored four in the bottom of the third. Detroit, though, didn't slow down, scoring four more times in the final four innings to grab the victory.

The lone bright spot for the Twins was the 30th home of the season for surprising outfielder Josh Willingham. His 30 bombs are already a career high and he's proven to be one of the best power hitters in the majors this season.
