Twins Drop Rubber Game

 Torii Hunter hit his 300th career home run to help power the Tigers to a 5-2 win over the Twins at Target Field.  The former Twin hit a two-run shot in the first inning and Austin Jackson added a two-run blast in the fourth for Detroit.  P.J. Walters dropped to 2-and-2 with the loss.  Brian Dozier homered and Clete Thomas singled in a run for Minnesota. 

The Twins have today off.  Minnesota has dropped three of four to fall to 30-and-36.  They will begin a three-game set hosting the White Sox tomorrow night.
