When You Have the Worst Record in Baseball, Maybe What You Need Is a Homestand against the Twins

Sorry Thorgerson, but I couldn't resist.

Tigers win for the third time (!) this season: 11-9 against the Twins.

I missed the game, but this sounds familiar:

Todd Jones almost needed the two-run cushion his teammates gave him, putting two on with two outs before earning his second save. It was the 303rd save of his career to pull into a tie with Doug Jones for 19th on the career list.

UPDATE: Game 2 goes to the Tigers, too. A two-game winning streak! Note also that there appears to have been a classic Jones moment in the ninth: Jones came on with a two-run lead, gave up a triple, got a ground out, gave up an RBI single (to former Tiger Craig Monroe), got a fly out and a strike out.
