Twins Get One-Run Win at Detroit
Minnesota beat Detroit at Comerica Tigers Park, escaping with a 7-6 win. The win in large part was due to right fielder Max Kepler, who earned player of the game honors. He went 2-3 with a home run and a walk, while adding 4 RBI and scoring once. Picking up the save was Jeff Williams, his 2nd. The loss drops Detroit to 12-13.

Kepler had a clutch at-bat in the top of the third for the Twins. Coming up with the bases loaded and Minnesota trailing 2-1, he hit a grand slam.

"Nothing is scripted in this game," said Kepler.
