Tigers vs. Twins Preview: The AL Wild Card race is all but over

Detroit is providing little resistance to Minnesota’s march towards the playoffs. Three years ago, the Minnesota Twins gave the Tigers all they could handle down the stretch as Detroit marched toward their fourth consecutive AL Central title. While the Tigers ultimately won the crown with a 90-72 record, it came down to the slimmest of margins. The biggest reason for that slim gap? A Twins team that beat Detroit in 10 of 19 meetings and outscored them 85-60 in their 11 games after the All-Star break. The two teams have taken on opposite roles this year, and so has the script.

Twins 7, Tigers 3: Buxton and Kepler lead Twins past Tigers

Twins 7, Tigers 3: Buxton and Kepler lead Twins past Tigers

Gibson pitches well as Buxton and Kepler lead Twins past Tigers 7-3 The kitties pounced first with Nick Castellanos belting a solo HR in the 2nd, and for a moment it looked like Kyle Gibson had reverted once again to his old bad ways. But thankfully Max Kepler has no sympathy for any endangered species (such as tigers) and homered for the second night in a row to tie things up in the 3rd. The Tigers answered right back plating another run in the bottom half of the 3rd, taking a 2-1 lead on a bloop RBI single by Ian Kinsler. Byron Buxton had a great night going 3-4, including a 2 run double...

Tigers drop to 30 games under .500 after losing another to surging Twins

Nicholas Castellanos and Ian Kinsler homered for Detroit, but the Tigers dropped to 4-18 in September. DETROIT (AP) -- Max Kepler and Brian Dozier homered, Byron Buxton had three hits and the playoff-chasing Minnesota Twins beat the Detroit Tigers 7-3 on Friday night. Buxton's two-run double in the fourth put the Twins ahead to stay against a Detroit team that announced before the game that manager Brad Ausmus will not be back in 2018. Minnesota came into the night leading the race for the American League's second wild card by 2 1/2 games over Texas and the Los...

Twins 7, Tigers 2: Dead Man Walkin’

Twins 7, Tigers 2: Dead Man Walkin’

Brad Ausmus won’t be back as manager, and yet the Tigers still played. The big story of the day, of course, is the news that the Tigers aren’t going to renew Brad Ausmus’ managerial contract for next season. Could the lame-duck manager guide his team to victory on a sultry Friday September night, where the game-time temperature was 86 F (30 C)? Nope. Daniel Norris, bless his heart, he tried. The Twins got to him for three runs in the fourth, and he couldn’t make it out of the fifth. Some at Bless You Boys think that he’s far too amped-up on the mound, which would explain his...
