Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) - Eduardo Escobar doubled home the tying and
winning runs in the bottom of the ninth inning as the Minnesota Twins rallied
for a 3-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers from Target Field.
The Twins fought back from a 2-0 deficit after six innings to rebound from
Monday's 4-2 setback to the defending American League champion Tigers, with
Wilkin Ramirez contributing a pinch-hit, RBI double in the bottom of the
Escobar's double off Phil Coke (0-1) made a winner out of Glen Perkins (1-0)
after the Minnesota closer tossed a 1-2-3 top of the ninth. Starter Kevin
Correia aided the cause by firing seven solid innings in which the offseason
acquisition yielded just two runs while scattering seven hits.
Anibal Sanchez threw five shutout frames for Detroit, with 2012 AL Triple
Crown winner Miguel Cabrera knocking in both Tiger runs with a pair of RBI
