Tigers look for rare series win vs. Twins

The Detroit Tigers have the worst record in baseball at 39-87. But manager Ron Gardenhire is starting to see some positives during their current 3-5 road trip that began with stops at Tampa Bay and Houston and continued with a 9-6 victory over the American League Central-leading Minnesota Twins on Friday night in Minneapolis.

The Tigers rolled up 17 hits, their second-highest total in a game this season, in the win. Ronny Rodriguez went 3-for-5 with his first career grand slam and Dawel Lugo and Harold Castro each had two doubles and three hits.

"I think there's a little bit of confidence going right now," Gardenhire told reporters. "We're starting to swing the bats. We know we're going to have our moments, and we were in a lot of those games (on the road trip)."
