Can the Twins top the Tigers again? MLB Predictions 8/12/17

Joe Mauer cleared the bases with a double to get the Twins on the board and Eddie Rosario crushed a game-tying homer. Detroit scratched across a run off Dillon Gee in the seventh inning before tallying three more in the eighth, as Trevor Hildenberger allowed two runners he inherited from Gee to score and let in a run of his own to make it 11-10.

The Twins stayed fell 4 1/2 games behind first-place Cleveland in the American League Central and slipped out of the second AL wild-card spot pending late West Coast games.

Tigers closer Shane Greene escaped a bases-loaded mess in the top of the ninth inning by striking out Miguel Sano to end the inning, keeping the skinny, one-run deficit.

Mauer hit a two-run home run off Edward Mujica in a three-run sixth inning.

Matt Belisle, who bailed out Hildy by getting the final out of the eighth inning, opened up the the ninth by giving up a leadoff single to Mikie Mahtook.

RANGERS 6, ASTROS 4: At Arlington, Texas, Cole Hamels pitched seven scoreless innings, Elvis Andrus scored each time after his three hits and Texas handed Houston its fourth straight loss. Singles by Brian Dozier and Max Kepler loaded the bases.

Jose Iglesias hit a two-run homer, his fourth home run of the year, in the eighth inning after James McCann reached a career-best five RBIs by hitting into a force-out with runners on first and third. Zimmerman has managed to get through seven innings in his last three starts, allowing six total runs in that span. Detroit doesn't have the bullpen to back him up while Berrios has still shown his ability to shut down lineups in recent starts.

Zimmermann wouldn't survive the fourth.

Miguel Cabrera came out of the game after he singled in the fifth inning, complaining of lower back stiffness.

And things started so well for the Tigers.

Our models project Escobar for a.256 batting average, with 3 home runs, 13 RBI, and 14 runs scored over 128 plate appearances remaining this season. With two outs, Castellanos' infield single scored Mahtook.
