Twins Fall 4-2 Sunday Afternoon in Detroit
The Minnesota Twins (54-63) came up short Sunday afternoon in Detroit, falling 4-2 to the Tigers on Jack Morris Day at Comerica Park in Motown.
Minnesota starter Kohl Stewart (0-1) took the loss in his Major League debut, despite tossing four scoreless innings before giving up three in the fifth -- being relieved by Taylor Rogers, Tyler Duffy, and Gabriel Moya.
Minnesota took a 1-0 lead in the second inning when catcher Mitch Garver drilled a triple to center field -- eventually scoring on left fielder Johnny Field's sacrifice fly.
The Tigers would score three off Stewart in the fifth, before Minnesota's Max Kepler led off the eighth with a solo homer bringing the Twins to within one, but that would be short-lived as the Tigers added another in the bottom of the inning to secure the 4-2 win.
