Tigers 5, Twins 1
DETROIT — Miguel Cabrera homered twice to back Justin Verlander's fifth complete game of the season for the Tigers. The Twins didn't get a baserunner until a single by Tampa Catholic graduate Denard Span to lead off the fourth. (He's now 15-for-38 for a .395 average against Verlander.) Chris Parmalee got Minnesota on the board with a homer off Verlander in the fifth. But Cabrera answered with a 429-foot shot to centerfield. Cabrera added a two-run homer in the seventh.
