Tigers score 6 in 6th, rally past Twins 11-6

Brennan Boesch hit a go-ahead double shortly after a disputed play that got Minnesota manager Ron Gardenhire ejected, and the Detroit Tigers rallied for six runs in the sixth inning to beat the Minnesota Twins 11-6 Wednesday night. The Twins took an early 6-1 lead, and still led by a run in the sixth. With one out and a runner on first, Johnny Damon hit a deep drive and center fielder Denard Span appeared to make a running catch. Span, however, lost the ball after taking two steps. After a lengthy discussion, the umpires ruled Span hadn't held the ball long enough for an out, and Gardenhire was tossed for arguing the call. Detroit took advantage of the two-base error, with Boesch and Brandon Inge later hitting two-run doubles. (Copyright 2010 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
