Candelario’s homer in 10th lifts Tigers in win vs. Twins


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Jeimer Candelario hit the tiebreaking two-run homer in the 10th inning for the Detroit Tigers to beat the Minnesota Twins 4-2.

Harold Castro went deep twice earlier as Tigers dodged another sweep and broke a six-game winning streak by the Twins.  The Tigers have 25 homers in 43 games for the fewest in baseball.

Trevor Larnach hit a two-run homer for the Twins in the fourth inning to spoil an otherwise-stellar start by Rony García pieced together by Tigers relievers.

Minnesota manager Rocco Baldelli on the game:

The Twins announced before the game they have placed starting pitcher Joe Ryan on the COVID-19 injured list.

He was scheduled to start on Thursday against Kansas City.

The 25-year-old right-hander leads all major league rookies with five wins and 43 1/3 innings. He’s second among rookies with 42 strikeouts. T

he Twins will fill Ryan’s place in the rotation with Devin Smeltzer. The left-hander was recalled from Triple-A St. Paul. He pitched last Friday. He was sent down to make room for the return of Bailey Ober from the injured list.
