Buxton’s Speed Gives Twins a Walk-Off Win
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Miguel Sanó led Minnesota’s rally against the Detroit bullpen with a home run and the tying single in the ninth inning, before Byron Buxton beat out an infield single for the game-winning RBI to give the Twins a 4-3 victory over the Tigers.
Sanó singled to drive in Josh Donaldson, who walked to start the ninth against José Cisnero. With two outs and two strikes, Buxton hit a slow grounder to shortstop Willi Castro. One of the fastest players in baseball, Buxton blazed down the first-base line and just beat Castro’s throw.
The Twins have won five straight games.
