MLB: Tigers Beat Twins in Ninth
Detroit Tigers Circle LogoJ.D. Martinez’ sacrifice fly in the bottom of the ninth lifted the Tigers to a 4-3 victory over the Twins yesterday. The fly ball to center field was just deep enough to enable Torii Hunter to score. Hunter had opened the inning with a single. He advanced to third when Victor Martinez’ fly ball to deep center field was dropped by Oswaldo Arcia. The run made a winner of Joe Nathan… who allowed two hits in the top of the ninth, but worked his way out of the jam. Rick Porcello gave up three runs over seven innings.

The Tigers host the Royals tonight. Justin Verlander will face Jason Vargas. Hear the first pitch at 7:08 on AM 1400, WCCY.

The Tigers brought lefthander Blaine Hardy up from Toledo yesterday, and sent Corey Knebel back down. Manager Brad Ausmus said Knebel needs more work than he can get in the Tigers’ pen. Meanwhile, reliever Ian Krol is nursing a sore shoulder. He’s considered day-to-day.
