MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Joe Crede capped another Minnesota comeback with a two-run, two-out single in a six-run seventh inning that ruined Justin Verlander's strong start and sent the Twins past the Detroit Tigers 6-5 on Thursday to finish a three-game sweep.
Crede's blooper into shallow center against struggling reliever Zach Miner, who walked Michael Cuddyer to load the bases, put the Twins ahead about 14½ hours after his grand slam in the 13th ended Wednesday night's game.
After a five-run, two-out rally in the sixth by the Tigers against starter Scott Baker, Minnesota's bullpen held up. Craig Breslow (1-1) got five outs, Matt Guerrier got one and Joe Nathan notched his sixth save with a perfect ninth.
