Rosario's HR in 8th leads Twins past Tigers 5-4

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Eddie Rosario hit a tiebreaking homer in the eighth inning and the Minnesota Twins connected three times in all, beating the Detroit Tigers 5-4 Sunday.

Max Kepler and Jake Cave also homered as the Twins won for the fifth time in six games.

Behind in the count 0-2 after two swings-and-misses to lead off the inning, Rosario launched the third fastball he saw from Alex Wilson (1-4) into the right field seats for his 22nd home run.
