DETROIT – Add another near miss in this 2013 baseball season – this time it was Detroit’s Anibal Sanchez falling just short of a no-hitter.
Sanchez’s bid was broken up with one out in the ninth inning Friday night when Minnesota’s Joe Mauer hit a clean single up the middle. That was the only hit the right-hander allowed in the Tigers’ 6-0 victory over the Twins. It was the fourth one-hitter of Sanchez’s career, to go along a no-hitter he threw as a rookie back in 2006.
DETROIT – Prince Fielder bounced a tie-breaking single off Jared Burton’s glove in the eighth inning, leading the Detroit Tigers to a 7-6 come-from-behind victory over the Minnesota Twins on Thursday night.
ATLANTA — The Minnesota Twins have placed third baseman Trevor Plouffe on the seven-day disabled list with a concussion after he was struck in the head by Dan Uggla's shin while breaking up an attempted double play.
ATLANTA – Evan Gattis hit a two-out, pinch-hit homer in the ninth to send the game to extra innings and Freddie Freeman won it in the 10th, sending the Atlanta Braves to their fifth straight win, 5-4 over the slumping Minnesota Twins on Tuesday night.
MINNEAPOLIS – The Minnesota Twins have lost five straight and are a season-worst four games under .500. Facing a nine-game road trip, starting with a three-game interleague series against first-place Atlanta today, things could quickly get out of hand if they don’t rediscover their offense.
