DETROIT (AP) — Justin Morneau had a season high four hits, including a two-run homer and a two-run double, and Glen Perkins struck out Miguel Cabrera with two on for the final out to help the Minnesota Twins hold off the Detroit Tigers in a 6-3 win Tuesday night.
Mike Pelfrey gave up three runs and seven hits in 6 2-3 innings. Jared Burton got out of a two-on, one-out jam in the eighth, and Perkins finished for his 29th save in 32 chances — barely.
Rick Porcello allowed five runs and seven hits over 4 1-3 innings for Detroit.
The Twins were without All-Star Joe Mauer, who was scratched from his start at first when he experienced dizziness during batting practice.
Meanwhile, Tigers star Miguel Cabrera has another injury to deal with as he attempts to become the first to win baseball's Triple Crown in consecutive seasons.
Cabrera might have aggravated a previous ailment, or he may have a new one.
Manager Jim Leyland says Cabrera was in pain after his first swing in the ninth inning Tuesday night against Minnesota. Cabrera struck out swinging with two on, closing out a 6-3 victory for the Twins.
Leyland wasn't sure if the injury was in Cabrera's groin or stomach area. Cabrera has been playing through a strained lower abdomen, injured hip and banged-up left leg.
Cabrera had one hit in five at-bats, dropping his batting average to .359 with 40 homers and 120 RBIs.
