DETROIT (AP) -- David Price pitched Detroit to its fourth straight AL Central title with the type of performance the Tigers acquired him for, taking a shutout into the eighth inning of a 3-0 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday that wrapped up the division on the regular season's final day.
Ian Kinsler hit a solo homer in the third, and the Tigers added two more runs in the eighth off Kyle Gibson (13-12). Detroit entered the game with a postseason berth already wrapped up, but the Tigers led the division by only one game over Kansas City. The victory gave Detroit the division championship -- regardless of what the Royals were doing in Chicago against the White Sox.
The Tigers face the Baltimore Orioles in the AL Division Series.
