The Minnesota Twins (59-64) got a late home run from Eddie Rosario to lift them to a 5-4 win Sunday afternoon over the Detroit Tigers at Target Field.

The score was tied 1-1 when Jorge Polanco hit an RBI two run double off the center field wall to give the Twins a 2-1 lead. Max Kepler followed up with a solo home run in the bottom of the 4th to lift the Twins to 3-1. Jake Cave did the same and the Twins led 4-1 after four.

Detroit would score three of their own in the sixth to tie things up at 4-4, and that's where things would stand until Eduardo Rosario hit is 22nd home run of the season giveing Minnesota the 5-4 lead and the win.


Minnesota starter starter Jake Odorizzi pitched five innings, giving up four runs on four hits and a pair of walks, with seven strikeouts. Matt Magill and Taylor Rogers appeared in middle relief, before Trevor Hildenberger came in to record the final four outs to record the win.
