The Tigers put on quite a show for the hometown fans beating the Minnesota Twins 8-0 at Comerica Park on Saturday. Doug Fister pitched a complete game seven-hit shutout striking out seven. Austin Jackson hit a lead off home run in the first inning, and Detroit was on its way. Delmon Young hit a three-run homer in the third inning to put Detroit up 6-0. Miguel Cabrera hit his 42nd home run of the year in the fourth inning tying him with Josh Hamilton for the league lead. Cabrera now leads the league in batting average .332, and RBI with 131. Carl Yastremski was the last triple crown winner in 1967. Twins starter Samuel Deduno (6-5) was hammered for seven runs in just 2 1/3 innings of work taking the loss.

Detroit hopes to keep on winning when they play a day night double-header on Sunday. In game one Detroit will send Max Scherzer (16-6, 3.78) to the mound to face Twins starter Scott Diamond (11-8, 3.69). In the night game the Tigers will start Drew Smyly (4-3, 4.45) against P.J. Walters (2-4, 6.39).
