Detroit drops fourth straight in 6-3 loss to Minnesota

Detroit drops fourth straight in 6-3 loss to Minnesota

So far in 2017, the first baseman has a.226/.339/.434 slash line with three home runs entering Friday's game.

After Verlander walked the first three Twins batters in the sixth inning, designated hitter Robbie Grossman hit a seeing-eye single through the right side of the infield. That scored a pair of runs as Minnesota cut the lead to 3-2.

Polanco's bloop to left tied it to set up Rosario's heroics.

Champs-Elysees gunman had note defending IS group
The gunman - who was detained and released as recently as February for threatening a police officer - was killed on the scene. Police shot and killed Cheurfi after he opened fire on a police van on Paris' most famous boulevard.

Verlander, whose ERA rose to 6.04, allowed four runs, three hits and six walks - one shy of his career high - in five-plus innings. He had been 12-1 in his previous 18 starts against the Twins. Minnesota's bullpen bounced back from a rough game Thursday against Cleveland to finish out the game after Santiago's exit.

Mike Pelfrey has yet to find his footing on the mound this season, turning in a 7.50 with Triple-A Charlotte after he allowed ten hits, five runs and struck out four in his first two minor league outings last week. He has also totaled 3 home runs and 9 RBIs over his first 16 games.

One batter later, Justin Upton doubled to deep center to score Cabrera and move Martinez to third. Eight runs in the last 4 games, we need to get home!

MPs back May's poll call
Cooper said: "The Prime Minister said yesterday that she was calling a General Election because Parliament was blocking Brexit". Sturgeon said Tuesday that May was seeking "to crush the voices of people who disagree with her".

Verlander stumbled again, Cabrera left after straining his right groin and Detroit wasted a three-run lead against the Minnesota Twins, who burst ahead when Eddie Rosario hit a three-run homer that capped a six-run sixth inning in a 6-3 victory. Iglesias took a knee to his jaw on the final play of Wednesday's game. Veteran James Loney has recently been assigned to Triple-A Toledo and would be a likely candidate.

Mejia, 23, made his Major League debut last August but pitched in only one game.
