Tigers Minneapolis – An old April Bugabu was raising a tiger on Thursday night. Failing to convert a pair of double plays, and a huge missed chance at offense, the Tigers lost 5-3 to the Minnesota Twins at Target Field on Thursday night.
Miguel Sano of the Minnesota Twins celebrated his single-home Detroit Tigers callback Tariq Scubal to tie a baseball game in the seventh round.
“It’s frustrating,” director AJ Hinch said. “It doesn’t become our norm, but you are quickly reminded in this game that if you don’t play it, it can hurt you in the end.
Tigers The defeat came as left-arm rookie Tariq Skubal, who started the game with 13 straight outs, reduced another strong outing.

“We couldn’t run and we gave up quite a few outs and we missed some chances,” Hinch said. “And we couldn’t keep the ball in the stadium. Those were the three keys to these games.”
With 42 home runs from left-handed pitching, the tournament came to the top baseball in the game. And Scoobel’s 17 home runs are third in the American League. Some fireworks were conceivable.
Catcher Ryan Jeffers finished the series with a straight home run of 13 outs in fifth place. Miguel Sano then started the seventh with a single home run that tied the game 3-3.
“It’s a tough loss,” Schubel said. “I couldn’t do enough to keep our team ahead 3-1. I couldn’t do well getting the ball to the next player.”
