Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez homered, Max Scherzer made it through six tough innings and the Detroit Tigers moved closer to another AL Central title with a 4-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Thursday night.
Kyle Gibson matched a career high with eight strikeouts, Chris Parmelee hit a two-run single after entering the game for an injured Joe Mauer, and the Minnesota Twins beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-3 on Tuesday night.
That large early lead was long gone for the Detroit Tigers. They saw Kansas City's comeback slowly unfolding on the out-of-town scoreboard.
No sweat. One big swing by Torii Hunter eased the pennant-race tension.
