GAME RECAP

IMPACT PLAYER

Torii Hunter, Tigers

The former Twin was 2-for-5 with a key two-run double and hustling running play in the Tigers victory.

BY THE NUMBERS

27 Times the Twins have been held to one run or fewer.

.356 Batting average for Detroit’s Victor Martinez over his past 55 games.

.667 Batting average for Justin Morneau in the series.

ON DECK

One of many reasons why Justin Verlander is one of the true aces in the game is that he can handle a big workload. In his past 17 starts, Verlander has averaged 110 pitches a game. He threw 124 pitches in his last outing, a loss to Kansas City on Saturday. He’ll try to avoid back-to-back losses when he faces the Twins on Thursday at Comerica Park. First pitch is at 12:08 p.m.
