The Minnesota Twins swept their doubleheader today against the Detroit Tigers.
The night game saw Twins starter P.J. Walters throw a very effective six innings, giving up only five hits and a run while striking out four. Brian Duensing, Jared Burton and Glen Perkins combined to one-hit the Tigers over the final four innings.
The Tigers scratched out their lone run of the game in the first inning, as Austin Jackson led off with a single and was driven home by Miguel Cabrera's double. It was RBI number 133 for Cabrera this season.
