Upton walk-off homer caps wild, seesaw win for Tigers

Upton walk-off homer caps wild, seesaw win for Tigers

His heroics were on display once again Saturday night as he carried the Tigers to a 12-11 walk off victory over the Twins. Then the wheels finally came falling off the bullpen.

The Twins trailed 5-0 after one inning, but Mauer's bases-loaded double in the third inning cut the deficit to two runs, and Eddie Rosario followed with a game-tying, two-run homer run to deep right-center.

Berrios may be struggling while Zimmerman has been okay lately, but I don't trust Zimmerman to lead the Tigers to a win today. With RHP Brandon Kintzler traded, the Twins don't have a set closer, so Molitor said Minnesota will continue to mix and match at the end of games. Joe Mauer drive in the other two runs for Minnesota.

The Tigers scored one run in the seventh and then three runs in the eighth to go into the ninth inning down just one. Things would tilt back in the Tigers favor from there on. You could feel the momentum shift at Comerica Park.

Minnesota starter Jose Berrios was charged with six runs over 3.1 frames before Dillon Gee gave up three runs in three innings and Matt Belisle served up a two run walk bomb in the 9th. The home was Upton's 22 of the season, and he got all of it.

West Brom fans react on Twitter to Jay Rodriguez's performance
Tony Pulis hopes he can take West Brom to the next level after signing a contract to remain as head coach until 2019. Pulis said: "We want everyone to chip in and the quality we got from set plays today was absolutely fantastic".

It was too bad the pitching couldn't hold it together, because this was a banner night for the Twins bats. The five-RBI night gave Mauer seven RBIs (and five hits) in the series. Jorge still managed to extend his hitting streak to 10 games.

James McCann went 2-for-4 with a grand slam, five RBI and three runs scored in a win over the Twins on Saturday.

Reliever Daniel Stumpf gave up an RBI single to Jason Castro in the fifth, giving Minnesota an 8-6 lead. He left the bases loaded by striking out Miguel Sano on three straight sliders. After getting off to a bit of a slow start, Rosie had at least an.800 OPS in May, June and July.

Jose Berrios gave up a grand slam in the first inning and left this one after just 3.1 innings pitched. He didn't strike anybody out, either.

The Minnesota Twins and Detroit Tigers take the field in Sunday afternoon MLB baseball action. He retired both batters he faced to protect the lead.
