— Scott Diamond pitched six solid innings, and the Minnesota Twins got to Anibal Sanchez early in a 6-2 win over Detroit on Wednesday that snapped the Tigers' five-game winning streak.
Sanchez (3-2) was coming off a 17-strikeout performance against Atlanta, and he fanned five in the first two innings against the Twins — but Minnesota scored two runs in the first and another in the second. Diamond (2-2) didn't allow a hit until Jhonny Peralta's single in the fifth.
The Tigers fought back after trailing 3-0, but reliever Bruce Rondon allowed two more runs in the seventh to make it 5-2. Chris Parmelee hit a solo homer in the eighth.
Diamond allowed two runs and four hits and was pulled after 88 pitches.
— The Detroit Tigers have sent right-handed reliever Bruce Rondon back to the minors, optioning him to Triple-A Toledo after Wednesday's 6-2 loss to Minnesota.
Rondon came on in the seventh inning against the Twins and got only one out. He allowed two runs, two hits and two walks.
Detroit says it will call up reliever Luke Putkonen before Thursday night's game at Houston.
Earlier Wednesday, the Tigers put left-hander Phil Coke on the 15-day disabled list and recalled right-hander Jose Ortega from Toledo. The Tigers also reinstated outfielder Avisail Garcia from the 15-day DL and optioned him to Toledo.
Coke has been bothered by a left groin strain, and he went on the DL retroactive to April 26.
Garcia has missed time because of a bruised right heel.
