The Detroit Tigers opened a ten-game road trip with a 5-4 win over the Twins last night in Minnesota.
Jose Iglesias finished a double shy of hitting for the cycle and went three-for-five at the plate, including a solo home run.
Yoenis Cespedes had a three-run home run.
David Price got his second win of the season.
He gave up three runs on six hits while striking out seven in six innings of work.
Joakim Soria earned his eighth save with a one-hit ninth.
Anibal Sanchez is scheduled to go to the mound for the Tigers tonight and the Twins will start Mike Pelfrey.
Tigers officials said yesterday that starting pitcher Justin Verlander’s right triceps injury is slowly healing.
Verlander had a second MRI late last week and the test showed less inflammation in his arm.
He has not thrown a ball since mid-April, and a timetable for his return has not been set.
Outfielder Rajai Davis left Detroit’s 8-6 win over Cleveland Sunday with tightness in his groin and was cleared to play against the Twins last night, but was held out as a precaution.
