Tigers 5, Twins 4: Detroit pounces on Milone early

Tommy Milone's rough first put Minnesota in an early hole. After the top of the first, the Twins outscored the Tigers 4-1. That 4-0 hole was a bit much for a team that has, for the most part, struggled to stack up big run totals so far this spring. All of Detroit's runs in that first came off of the home run. Jose Iglesias tallied his first homer of the season as the second hitter of the game, and four batters later Yoenis Cespedes smashed a three-run bomb to notch his fourth jack of the season. Milone allowed the fifth and final run in the top of the second, having put the first two...

Postgame Twinsights: What happened to all those Twins pinch hitters?

SEATTLE -- Twins manager Paul Molitor had an unusually accomplished bench at his disposal on Sunday. In addition to Jordan Schafer, who was a late-inning defensive replacement, Molitor could have inserted young slugger Kennys Vargas, backup catcher Kurt Suzuki or regular right fielder Torii Hunter at some point. None of those three, however, got into the 11-inning win over the Seattle Mariners. “They were breathing on me,” Molitor said. “They were making their presence known.” He shook his head and smiled.. “I had opportunities if you want to second-guess or question,” Molitor...
