The Detroit Tigers offense has not been two strong the last couple of games, but a little spark each time has put them into the win column.

James McCann’s third homer of the season, one that hit right off the top of the left field fence, drove in both runs the Tigers (5-2) were able to manage in a 2-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins Tuesday afternoon. The second-year catcher only has four hits on the season so far, but three of three have them have gone yard.

The Tigers only managed four hits off of Twins (5-2) pitching, with Nicholas Castellanos, Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez each punching singles.

Matt Boyd (1-1) was solid in his second start of the season, striking out six in seven innings of work for his first win on the mound. Francisco Rodriguez made it interesting, allowing the only Twins run in the ninth for his third save in four chances.

Jason Castro had an RBI single as part of his 2-for-3 day to lead the Twins in the loss.

Game 2 of the three-game series takes place Wednesday afternoon at Comerica Park. Michael Fulmer has his second start of the season for the Tigers, squaring off with the Twins’ Kyle Gibson. Catch the action at 12:45pm on 95.3 WBCK!
