  • Tigers allow 20 runs in Minnesota, turn to shortstop Andrew Romine for relief

    Friday marked the seventh anniversary of the Texas Rangers putting up 30 runs in one game against the Baltimore Orioles, so maybe we shouldn't be too surprised that a team turned back the clock and lit up the scoreboard again. Then again, maybe we should be surprised, because who would have ever wagered on the Minnesota Twins scoring 20 runs in a game this season, let alone against the pitching-rich Detroit Tigers?

    Not many, probably, but baseball cares nothing about odds or what's expected. Anything can happen on any given day, and on Friday Minnesota's offense went bonkers in a 20-6 victory.

    Of course, the best part for fans who weren't rooting for Detroit came in the eighth inning when manager Brad Ausmus turned to shortstop Andrew Romine to provide some relief for his relief pitchers.
