Thursday’s AL games
TIGERS 7, Brennan Boesch drove in four runs on his 27th birthRays 2 day, leading Detroit to its fifth win in six games. Drew
Smyly gave up a run in four-plus innings in his major league debut. Despite having the American League’s best record, Tigers starters have not earned a win.
TWINS 10, Justin Morneau hit a two-run, go-ahead homer in the Angels 9 eighth as Minnesota rallied from six runs down. Joe Mauer went deep, too, hitting a three-run shot off Dan Haren in the fifth. Every Twins batter had at least one of the team’s 20 hits, enough to make up for the 14 men left on base, including eight in scoring position.
RANGERS 5, Michael Young hit a two-run homer and had four RBI Mariners 3 for Texas to back Derek Holland’s 71⁄ strong innings.
