MINNEAPOLIS – Leadoff man Denard Span was the catalyst for Minnesota with three singles and a walk, and the Twins beat the Detroit Tigers 5-4 on Wednesday for their first sweep in nine series this season.
The crowd at Target Field held a moment of silence before the game in honor of former Tigers broadcaster Ernie Harwell, who died Tuesday night. Detroit's uniforms had a black, circular "EH" patch on the sleeves.
