      Suarez leads Tigers to 12-9 victory over Twins

      Rookie Eugenio Suarez hit a leadoff homer and a run-scoring double in Detroit's seven-run third inning, and the slumping Tigers beat the Minnesota Twins 12-9 on Saturday.

      The Tigers led 11-1 after six innings, but their struggling bullpen had trouble finishing off the game.

      Detroit came into the game having lost 17 of 24 after a fast start to the season, but it was helped by another strong pitching performance. Anibal Sanchez (3-2) was charged with three runs and four hits in 6 1-3 innings.
