Can the Twins top the Tigers again? MLB Predictions 8/12/17

The Twins had several chances to add insurance runs in their half of the ninth, but Miguel Sano struck out with the bases loaded to end the inning.

Detroit Tigers left fielder Justin Upton (8) hits a RBI fielders choice in the fourth inning against the Minnesota Twins at Target Field. With RHP Brandon Kintzler traded, the Twins don't have a set closer, so Molitor said Minnesota will continue to mix and match at the end of games.

Matt Belisle did what he could, but it was not enough. Twin relievers had been on an incredible roll, but they gave up six runs over the final three innings, including a Justin Upton walk-off homer.

MARLINS 6, ROCKIES 3: At Miami, Giancarlo Stanton hit his Major League-leading 40th home run for Miami. The Twins racked up 19 hits with Joe Mauer going deep and driving in five while Eddie Rosario and Byron Buxton each homered and knocked in two runs apiece. Detroit starter Jordan Zimmermann was tagged for seven runs on eight hits through 3.1 innings pitched while Edward Mujica allowed three runs in two frames.

It ended the Twins' six game win streak.

On Friday, Anibal Sanchez allowed five runs in six innings to take the loss. The Tigers will evaluate him on Sunday.

After two relatively easy innings, when he threw 20 strikes out of 25 pitches, he walked No. 9 hitter Jason Castro with one out in the third.

Miguel Cabrera came out of the game after he singled in the fifth inning, complaining of lower back stiffness.

He would give up another run on an RBI single by Dozier before departing.

McCann doubled to open the fourth for Detroit and eventually scored when Iglesias hit into a forceout at second, pulling the Tigers within a run at 7-6. Everybody in the starting lineup had a multi-hit game other than Jorge Polanco, which was pretty ironic, since Polanco entered the night with five-straight multi-hit games. Things would tilt back in the Tigers favor from there on.

Our models project Escobar for a.256 batting average, with 3 home runs, 13 RBI, and 14 runs scored over 128 plate appearances remaining this season. With two outs, Castellanos' infield single scored Mahtook.
