Sanchez hit hard in Tigers loss to Twins

Baseball roundup: Cardinals roll to seventh straight win

The Minnesota Twins extended their winning streak to six games after knocking off the Detroit Tigers 9-4 Friday night.

The Tigers trailed 11-6 after six innings but pulled within one run on Jose Iglesias' two-run home run in the eighth inning off Trevor Hildenberger.

MARLINS 4, ROCKIES 3: Giancarlo Stanton continued his power surge with his 41st homer and drove in three runs in Miami's victory at home.

Reliever Daniel Stumpf gave up an RBI single to Jason Castro in the fifth, giving Minnesota an 8-6 lead. Berrios had a good start to the year, but has been struggling somewhat.

It's a good start to the season for Pulis's side, but the West Brom boss will want more new additions before the transfer window shuts.

Buxton led off the fourth with his sixth home run, which was just over the wall in right-center field and gave the Twins a 6-5 lead.

Minnesota sends right-hander Jose Berrios (10-5, 3.86 ERA) to the mound Saturday night against Detroit right-hander Jordan Zimmermann (7-9, 5.27) in the second game of the three game series. Santana did not receive a decision in a 5-4 win versus Milwaukee with are all four runs scoring (two earned) on six hits over six frames. Zimmermann was not almost as strong at Minnesota on July 22, when he was ripped for five runs on nine hits and four walks in 3 2/3 innings. His team handed him an early five run lead and he threw that away in the third inning by serving up a bases-loaded double to Joe Mauer and a two-run bomb to Eddie Rosario. Boyd comes off of a 6-3 loss at the Pittsburgh Pirates where he allowed all six runs (five earned) on nine hits over four innings of work.

Shane Greene (3-2) pitched one inning for the win. The red hot Twins had won eight of ten before their pitching was hammered Saturday in a 12-11 defeat at the Detroit Tigers. Zimmerman has managed to get through seven innings in his last three starts, allowing six total runs in that span. The Tigers brought OF Alex Presley (right side strain) back from a rehab assignment at Triple-A Toledo and put him in the starting lineup. 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.
