Twins Watch Tigers Celebrate

Twins Watch Tigers Celebrate

Max Scherzer earned his 21st win and the Detroit Tigers clinched their third straight AL Central title, beating the Minnesota Twins 1-0 on Wednesday night.

Torii Hunter’s single followed a leadoff triple by Austin Jackson in the first inning, and that was all Scherzer and the Tigers needed to start the party.

Scherzer gave up two singles in seven innings. Jose Veras and Drew Smyly teamed up for the eighth and Joaquin Benoit worked the ninth for his 24th save in 25 tries.

A few dozen Tigers fans in attendance at Target Field cheered from their seats while the players mobbed Benoit in front of the mound after he struck out Josh Willingham to end the game.
