Correa gets 3 hits; Twins top Tigers to go 6-0 in homestand


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Carlos Correa broke out of a slump with three hits and three RBIs and the Minnesota Twins completed a three-game sweep of the Detroit Tigers with a 7-1 victory on Thursday.

Gio Urshela, Trevor Larnach, and Gilbert Celestino each had two hits for the Twins.

Correa entered the game on an 0-for-10 skid that had dropped his batting average to .167. He came through with a two-run double in the fifth, an RBI single in the sixth and another single in the eighth.

Minnesota has won seven straight and finished off a 6-0 homestand that also included a sweep of the White Sox.

The Twins hit the road to begin a new series at Tampa Bay tonight with a 6:10 p.m. first pitch on 950 KWAT.
