Copeland Shines in Twins Win
The Minnesota Twins handed the Detroit Tigers a loss at Comerica Park. The final score was 13-9. Gary Copeland was named player of the game for Minnesota. In addition to his 2 singles and 1 home run, he scored 3 runs and drove in 4. He also added 1 walk. Jeffery Hoover picked up the win in relief, improving his record to 3-1. Bill Smith was tagged with the loss. Today's win puts Minnesota at 13-20, while Detroit falls to 12-20.

Minnesota took a 11-9 lead on Nolan Arenado's 31st hit of the season. The 2-run single, which Arenado hit in the top of the ninth, left Detroit pitcher Bill Smith visibly frustrated.

"I like to keep things lively in the clubhouse," said Arenado. "Believe me, it's much easier after a win."
