Can the Detroit Tigers bounce back at home tonight when they take on the Minnesota Twins at 6:10PM ET? Then the wheels finally came falling off the bullpen. 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.
The Twins offense continued to roll, as they built an 11-6 lead by the sixth inning.
And things started so well for the Tigers. Jorge Polanco ran his hitting streak to 10 games with a single to right and scored on a line single to left by Brian Dozier that chased starter Jordan Zimmermann and put Minnesota ahead 7-5.

Estanguet also had some thoughts for esports skeptics out there: "We have to look at it because we can't say, 'It's not us". By 2022, it will become an official sport at the event, although it is unknown which games would be contested.
Tigers closer Shane Greene escaped a bases-loaded mess in the top of the ninth inning by striking out Miguel Sano to end the inning, keeping the skinny, one-run deficit. You could feel the momentum shift at Comerica Park.
Matt Belisle did what he could, but it was not enough. The Twins now sit 58-56 overall and 31-23 on the road while Detroit is 52-63 overall and 28-27 at home.
It was too bad the pitching couldn't hold it together, because this was a banner night for the Twins bats. The five-RBI night gave Mauer seven RBIs (and five hits) in the series.

Reliever Daniel Stumpf gave up an RBI single to Jason Castro in the fifth, giving Minnesota an 8-6 lead.
But, again, as exciting an offensive output it was, the end result was pretty depressing thanks to a horrific night for the pitching staff. His grand slam off Jose Berrios in the first inning seemingly made this game a laugher from the beginning, but it ended up being a high-scoring, back-and-forth barn-burner.
Jose Iglesias hit a two-run homer, his fourth home run of the year, in the eighth inning after James McCann reached a career-best five RBIs by hitting into a force-out with runners on first and third. He didn't strike anybody out, either.
EPL: Arsene Wenger braced for knife-edge Arsenal season
All our players got a decent number of minutes of good competition, so overall the squad looks good. Wenger added: "For us, Alexis Sanchez is a loss, of course.
The win takes the Twins into the second Wild Card spot. He retired both batters he faced to protect the lead. "It's tough to swallow, those kind, especially when you need to win games".
