Detroit Tigers vs. Minnesota Twins rally to win 8-7 series split

MINNEAPOLIS — Riley Green. Spencer Torkelson. Kerry Carpenter.

The trio of high-profile players in the heart of the hitting streak combined for a four-game home run to lead the Detroit Tigers to an 8-7 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday in the finale of the two-game series at Target Field.

“The guys that hit them today are going to hit them for us,” Tigers manager AJ Hinch said of the homers. “Torque is growing in power. Riley, awesome homer net. Carp, opponents again. These guys are going to show some power.”

Greene, Torkelson and Carpenter drove in seven of the eight runs while collecting seven hits in 13 at-bats. Leadoff hitter Akil Baddoo, who scored three of those runs, set the table for the budding stars with a single and three walks in his five appearances on his 25th birthday.
