Justin Upton hammers walk-off two-run home run

JUST IN: Tigers will activate Michael Fulmer from DL; option Bruce Rondon

The win takes the Twins into the second Wild Card spot. Finally, they led 12-11 and the night was over as Justin Upton jogged around the bases after clobbering a walk-off two-run home run. Minnesota starter Jose Berrios was charged with six runs over 3.1 frames before Dillon Gee gave up three runs in three innings and Matt Belisle served up a two run walk bomb in the 9th.

Belisle had easily converted his first two save opportunities since Kintzler departed, and he struck out Ian Kinsler to end the eighth inning and preserve the Twins' one-run lead.

The Detroit Tigers have been struggling of late and need a reversal of fortunes.

Detroit had been 0-54 this year when trailing after eight innings and had lost six of seven but rallied to stop the Twins' six-game winning streak.

Zimmermann went seven innings in each of his last three starts but took the loss last time out while surrendering three runs and five hits at Pittsburgh.

The over is 6-2 in Minnesota last 8 versus the American League Central while the over is 38-17-6 in Minnesota last 61 road games versus a team with a losing record. "If it is beneficial to the team, I'm all for it".
