Tigers rally for doubleheader sweep against Twins
DETROIT (AP) - Miguel Cabrera’s bloop single scored Jonathan Schoop from first base, and the Detroit Tigers beat the Minnesota Twins 5-4 for a doubleheader sweep.
The second game was tied at 3 after seven innings, and the Twins went in front when pinch-runner Nick Gordon scored on a wild pitch by Joe Jiménez in the eighth.
But the Tigers rallied in the bottom half. Schoop hit a tying RBI single off Taylor Rogers.
After Robbie Grossman struck out, Cabrera dropped a hit into shallow center as Schoop raced around the bases.
Detroit kicked off the doubleheader with a 1-0 victory.
Grossman hit a leadoff homer, and four pitchers combined on a two-hitter.
