Knotts lifts the Tigers over Minnesota

The Tigers finally won a road game Saturday after losing 5/7 away from home. They beat the Minnesota Twins 6-0.

Gary Knotts(3-1) threw another gem going 7.2 innings while giving up only 3 hits and 0 runs.

The Tigers got all the runs they needed when Pena hit a solo shot (9th of the season) in the second inning. Carlos Guillen then padded the lead when he also hit a solo homer in the third inning.

Monroe continued his hot streak with another 2 hits and 4 RBIs. He now has 24 RBIs on the season.

Pudge went 4-5 on the day with 2 runs scored.

This was the first game that the Tigers have been on FOX in several years. It was nice to see them get a victory on the road against a Central Division foe.

This was the Tigers’ third shutout in their last 15 games and their second in 4 games. Their pitching has been stronger of late and hopefully they can keep it up.
