Ackerman Slugs Twins to 14-8 Win
The Minnesota Twins beat the Detroit Tigers, 14-8, at Target Field. Minnesota left fielder Stan Ackerman earned player of the game honors with an outstanding performance. He belted 2 home runs, while adding 3 RBI and scoring twice. The Twins bumped their record to 28-20 with this latest triumph.

In the bottom of the 6th, right fielder Robinson Salazar gave Minnesota the lead when he hit a grand slam home run. The Twins had been trailing 8-5, but the two-out home run off Detroit pitcher Stephen Strasburg changed that -- and Minnesota went on to win.

"I was able to barrel up some pitches," said Ackerman.
