Ehire Adrianza’s grand slam in the seventh inning powered the Minnesota Twins to a 6-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers last night. The blast spoiled a good outing by Blaine Hardy, who allowed just one run on two hits over six innings. Hardy left the game after giving up a leadoff single in the seventh. Louis Coleman then loaded the bases, and Warwick Saupold gave up the grand slam.
The Tigers host the Twins again tonight. Matthew Boyd will pitch against José Berríos. Pregame coverage will begin at 6:45 on 99.3 The Lift.
The Tigers will conclude their season without slugger Miguel Cabrera. Cabrera ruptured a left biceps tendon while swinging at a pitch last night. Manager Ron Gardenhire says surgery will be needed to repair the injury. Gardenhire said John Hicks will move to first base, and infielder Ronny Rodriguez will be called up from Toledo. Detroit had already brought up catcher Grayson Greiner from the Mud Hens, to fill the space created when reliever Zac Reininger was sent down.
Chase Anderson turned in seven strong innings, as the Milwaukee Brewers blanked the Chicago Cubs 4-0 last night. Anderson gave up just one weak hit. Travis Shaw clubbed a pair of two-run doubles.
The Brewers wrap up that set against the Cubs this afternoon. Jhoulys Chacín will start against Mike Montgomery.
Milwaukee has sent reliever Matt Albers to the disabled list with a shoulder problem. Reliever Jorge Lopez has been called up from Colorado Springs.
