Tigers pound the Twins Saturday in Detroit

by

DETROIT (WKZO) -- Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez each clubbed three-run homers as the Detroit Tigers downed the Minnesota Twins, 9-3, in the middle contest of a three-game set Saturday at Comerica Park.

Cabrera's fifth dinger of the season came during Detroit's six-run second inning, while Martinez smashed his eighth homer with two men aboard in the seventh to provide the bullpen with some breathing room.

Detroit starter Max Scherzer (5-1) struck out six and surrendered three runs on five hits and four walks over six innings to pick up the win.

Al Alburquerque, Joba Chamberlain and Phil Coke each fired a scoreless inning in relief of Scherzer to maintain Detroit's advantage.

Before the game began former Skipper Jim Leyland was honored with a framed painting. Leyland bemoaned the fact that they made it to the World Series twice but didn’t win it during his 8-year tenure but said it was a good run.

The Tigers and the Twins will play the rubber game of the series Sunday afternoon, if it doesn't rain.
