The Twins lost 5-1 at home against the Detroit Tigers Wednesday afternoon.  Max Scherzer threw 7 shutout innings with 4 hits and 2 walks allowed with 10 strikeouts to get the win.  Cole DeVries allowed 8 hits and 4 earned runs in 4 innings to take the loss and drop to 2-4.  Miguel Cabrera hit his 30th homerun this season and has become the 1st Tigers player to hit 30 or more homeruns in 5 straight seasons.

Joe Mauer was 2-4 with 1 RBI and Ben Revere was 2-4 with a run scored for the Twins.  Minnesota drops to 50-67 and are now 14 1/2 games back of the Chicago White Sox for first place in the American League Central.

The Twins are off today and will start a 3-game series at 9:10 Friday night, pregame on WJON at 8:40.  Righthander Nick Blackburn (4-8) gets the start on the mound for the Twins and righthander Hisashi Iwakuma (3-3) toes the rubber for the Mariners.
