MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Brian Dozier hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth to cap a seven-run rally and give the Minnesota Twins an 8-6 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Friday night.
   After missing out on an All-Star nomination earlier in the day, Dozier had two hits and four RBIs, and hit his second game-winning homer of the week. Dozier homered off Detroit closer Joakim Soria (3-1), who blew his third save in 23 chances.
   The Twins scored seven times in the ninth off Soria and Bruce Rondon after being limited to one run by Justin Verlander, who went 7 2-3 innings.
   Trevor May (6-7) pitched a scoreless ninth, giving up two hits.
