  8. V-Mart on fire, Twins collapse again

    David Schoenfield

    Crazy game this afternoon in Minnesota. The Tigers build a 5-2 lead as the red-hot Victor Martinez goes 3-for-3, including a home run off Scott Baker. Twins take a 6-5 lead in the bottom of the seventh when Jason Kubel launches a long three-run blast...
