Correia Better Than Final Score

Correia Better Than Final Score

It was a pitchers duel despite the final score. The Tigers offense came alive late posting four in the seventh and three in the eighth as they defeated the Twins, 7-1, in the second of three at Comerica Park.  Minnesota’s only run came on a Brian Dozier single.  Kevin Correia allowed two earned runs, four total, in six-and-two-thirds innings to fall to 8-and-10.  The Twins have lost five-of-six.

The Twins wrap up their three-game series with the Detroit Tigers today in the motor city.  Rookie Andrew Albers gets his fourth career start for Minnesota.  He is 2-and-1 with a 1.85 ERA in three starts so far.  The Tigers will counter with ace Justin Verlander, who is 12-and-9 with a 3.51 ERA.
