Detroit Tigers vs Minnesota Twins Live Stream 5/18/16: Watch Online
Detroit Tigers players seem to have rebounded from the team’s dreadful road. The Tigers will look for a fourth consecutive win and a sweep of the Twins on Wednesday. Justin Verlander will start.
Detroit Tigers fans have witnessed some solid play from the team in recent days. A day after outslugging the Twins 10-8 (in a game which also included a certain rant from manager Brad Ausmus), Detroit again claimed victory thanks to the team’s offense.
The Tigers won 7-2 thanks to a seven-run seventh inning that also saw a pair of home runs and eight hits. James McCann was the only starter not to reach base or drive in a run.
Additionally, Kyle Ryan, Mark Lowe and Justin Wilson limited the Twins to just two base runners in 3.2 innings pitched in relief of Mike Pelfrey.
One player who’s been key for the Tigers over the past two games has been Cameron Maybin. The center fielder is 4-for-6 with two stolen bases, a walk and an RBI. He’s added base-stealing element to the Detroit lineup that had sorely been missing. If he can continue to be a threat on the bases all season, it will make the Tigers batting order that much more dangerous.
Per the team’s official Twitter account, Maybin is again starting in center field and hitting seventh. Victor Martinez was a late scratch, with the team’s Twitter stating “an extra day of rest” as the reason for the designated hitter being held out. Steven Moya will DH and hit sixth. Here’s the full lineup.
