Sanchez hit hard in Tigers loss to Twins

Upton hit a sacrifice fly in the seventh, and McCann hit into a run-scoring forceout in the eighth and scored on Jose Iglesias' home run against Trevor Hildenberger that cut Detroit's gap to 11-10. Justin Upton showed off some of that power Saturday with a walk-off two-run homer to give the Tigers a 12-11 win over the Twins. Detroit has dropped six of its past seven games. Detroit starter Jordan Zimmermann was tagged for seven runs on eight hits through 3.1 innings pitched while Edward Mujica allowed three runs in two frames.

Upton finished the night 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBIs.

Byron Buxton homered leading off the fourth, sprinting around the bases at top speed until third-base coach Gene Glynn informed him the ball was in the seats.

Tigers: 1B Miguel Cabrera left with lower-back tightness after six innings.

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said 3B Nick Castellanos will begin working out in right field and could play there by the end of the season. Anibal Sanchez was charged with the loss for the Tigers, his third.

I think Minnesota has an edge on hill and the team really has to win after Saturday's bad loss... Veteran Ervin Santana is scheduled to be on the hill to oppose the division rival Detroit Tigers on Sunday. Zimmermann was not almost as strong at Minnesota on July 22, when he was ripped for five runs on nine hits and four walks in 3 2/3 innings. LHP Matt Boyd (5-6) opens for the Tigers.

The Minnesota Twins are not going away in the American League Central race as the team has turned on the jets the last few weeks.
