Newsclip®: [Sports] Tigers blow 8-0 lead, but get late homers to beat Twins - San Francisco Chronicle

"The Tigers led 8-0 after one inning with AL ERA leader Jordan Zimmermann on the mound, only to see the Minnesota Twins come back to tie the game in the seventh. J.D. Martinez, whose dropped fly ball allowed the tying run to score in the seventh, homered in the eighth to give the Tigers a two-run lead. Zimmermann (6-2) had only allowed eight earned runs in his seven starts this season, but gave up seven more, plus an unearned run, and 11 hits in seven innings. Ian Kinsler gave the Tigers a lead on the first pitch of the first inning, driving it into the stands in left for Detroit's first leadoff homer of the season. The next two hitters walked, and Castellanos made it 2-0 with an RBI single. Twins starter Jose Berrios continued to struggle to find the plate, walking Cameron Maybin to load the bases and Jarrod Saltalamacchia to give the Tigers a three-run lead. Jose Iglesias followed with a three-run double to make it 6-0 and end Berrios' night after nine batters.",
