The Tigers blew a 6-0 lead but rallied to defeat the Twins last night, 8-6.

Torii Hunter and Miguel Cabrera hit back to back home runs in the 9th inning to put the Tigers on top for good.

Detroit built a 6-0 lead through 5 innings off of Anthony Swarzak before the Twins whittled away to tie it up in the bottom of the 8th.
