The righthander retired 16 straight Tigers at one point, earning his second victory in a row.

400 Twins’ victories over Detroit since the franchise moved to Minnesota, against 361 losses.

121 Walks recorded by Twins hitters this season, already a club record for the season’s first month.

24 Runs scored by Brian Dozier, tying Paul Molitor’s club record for most ever in March/April.

The Twins are 6-1 in series finales this year, but they will have to beat Justin Verlander to keep the trend going.
