Tigers top Twins, move into 1st place

ASSOCIATED PRESS

MINNEAPOLIS — Reliever Joel Zumaya's painful right arm injury marred Detroit's move into first place, after the Tigers used four first-inning runs against Francisco Liriano to beat the Minnesota Twins 7-5 on Monday night.

Brennan Boesch and Miguel Cabrera hit two-run doubles in the first off Liriano, who surrendered a season-high six runs in six-plus innings while the Tigers passed the Twins for a half-game lead in the AL Central.

That took the background to Zumaya's health, though, when the hard-throwing right-hander squirmed and winced around on the mound in obvious pain after throwing a pitch with one out in the eighth inning.

Zumaya missed large chunks of the last two seasons because of shoulder problems.
