DETROIT -- Starter Nick Blackburn was already done for the night, and with the score tied at 6 in the third inning, the Minnesota Twins needed to figure out a way through the rest of the game. Chris Clemons Pink Jersey . Reliever Jeff Gray took the mound: groundout, groundout, groundout. Then Gray came back for the fourth: groundout, flyout, flyout. Grey and the bullpen kept the Detroit bats under control, and the Twins went on to win 11-7 on Wednesday night. Jamey Carroll hit a two-run double in the sixth to give Minnesota the lead, and the sloppy Tigers couldnt overcome their four errors. After a wild beginning to the game, Gray retired the first six hitters he faced on only 14 pitches. "Huge," manager Ron Gardenhire said. "He was getting first-pitch swings, and those were huge, and then a lot of guys came in after that." Blackburn was pulled at the end of the second inning, having allowed six runs and six hits. He was bothered by a problem with his left thigh. The Twins also placed catcher Ryan Doumit on the 15-day disabled list after the game because of a strained right calf. They will recall outfielder Ben Revere from Triple-A Rochester for Thursdays game at Detroit. Miguel Cabrera hit an RBI double off Gray in the fifth to give the Tigers a 7-6 lead, but Carroll came up with men on first and second an inning later. His double off Duane Below (2-1) scored both runners. Brian Dozier hit a three-run homer for Minnesota in the second, and Trevor Plouffes two-run shot in the ninth made it 11-7. Minnesotas Justin Morneau went 1 for 5 with a double in his first game back after being on the disabled list with a sore left wrist. Alex Burnett (1-0) got the win. He was the second of five Minnesota relievers. Detroit is 9-16 since a 9-3 start and is now dealing with injuries to closer Jose Valverde (strained lower back) and centre fielder Austin Jackson (mild abdominal strain). Both are day to day. Jackson left Wednesdays game after hitting a flyout in the fourth inning. "You score seven runs, you have to win the game," manager Jim Leyland said. "If you dont, you have problems." In a sign of things to come, first baseman Prince Fielder dropped a routine throw with one out in the first. Joe Mauer followed with an RBI double, and shortstop Ramon Santiagos throw home was wild for another error. Josh Willinghams double made it 2-0. It was 2-1 in the second when second baseman Ryan Raburns two-out error kept a Minnesota rally alive. Dozier, the next batter, made it 5-1 with a homer to left. Detroit came back immediately, scoring five runs in the bottom of the inning. Raburn drew a one-out walk, and the next five hitters -- Brennan Boesch, Ramon Santiago, Jackson, Andy Dirks and Cabrera -- all hit singles. Fielders second sacrifice fly of the game gave the Tigers a 6-5 lead. Doumits RBI single in the third tied the game at 6, and Cabrera -- the third baseman -- made Detroits fourth error of the game later that inning. The Tigers became the first team since the New York Yankees in 2009 to have errors from all four infield spots in a game, according to STATS, LLC. Gray came on in the third and immediately slowed Detroits offence. "These guys are really aggressive. When they see a fastball, theyre swinging for sure," Gray said. "Making sure that you keep them off balance, and putting your fastball where you want it, is a big deal with these guys." Detroit starter Rick Porcello allowed six runs -- two earned -- and six hits in four innings. Down 9-7 in the seventh, the Tigers put men on second and third with one out. Alex Avila and Raburn struck out to end the threat. NOTES: Minnesota OF Denard Span (right hamstring) was initially in the starting lineup but was scratched about an hour before the game. ... The Twins beat the Tigers for the fifth time in their last 23 meetings. ... Detroit optioned INF Danny Worth to Triple-A Toledo and are expected to recall RHP Brayan Villarreal. ... Detroits Doug Fister (0-1) faces Minnesotas P.J. Walters (0-1) on Thursday. Robert Turbin Jersey . Stamps caught 24 passes for 585 yards over the stretch, highlighted by a 204-yard game against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. He also had two carries for 11 rushing yards and was a key cog in the Eskimos push for a crossover playoff spot. Leon Washington Womens Jersey . Instead, he was talking about his new deal with the Houston Rockets on Thursday on the same practice court where he worked in virtual anonymity seven months ago before he was waived. http://www.shopnflseahawksgears.com/iphone-case/ . Thats one of the reasons they traded for Joe Johnson. Johnson made the tiebreaking basket with 3:03 left, followed with another jumper, and the Nets beat the Boston Celtics 102-97 on Thursday night for their fourth straight victory. Zach Miller Womens Jersey . -- The Oakland Raiders had something more meaningful to celebrate on Monday than their first win under a new regime. Golden Tate Youth Jersey . Louis Cardinals tonight when they visit the Houston Astros to open a three-game series at Minute Maid Park.CALGARY -- The last three games the Calgary Stampeders have played have been hotly contested affairs decided by three points or less. They dont expect tonights matchup against the B.C. Lions to be any different. Watch the game live on TSN and TSN Mobile TV, tonight at 9pm et/6pm pt. The Stampeders (2-2) are coming off a thrilling 41-38 overtime win over the Saskatchewan Roughriders at home last week. Prior to that, they suffered a 33-32 loss to Montreal and a 39-36 defeat to Toronto in games that featured dramatic comebacks. "With the way the CFL is right now, I couldnt see any game not going down to the wire," said Calgary receiver Nik Lewis, who caught three touchdown passes against the Riders including the game-winning score in overtime. "All the teams are so evenly matched that all the games are going to be great." Quarterback Kevin Glenn, starting in place of the injured Drew Tate, helped engineer Calgarys comeback victory over the Riders after the tough losses. "Out of the four games that weve played, three of them have been down to the wire," said Glenn, who took over when Tate suffered a season-ending shoulder injury against the Argos on July 7. "Weve built some kind of familiarity with going down to the wire and playing all 60 minutes. I think its good. When you can get those kinds of games early in the year, it helps you later in the year." Veteran B.C. defensive back Korey Banks isnt surprised to see Glenn have success as a starter with the Stamps. "We definitely know its a dog-fight ahead of us," said Banks, whose Lions (2-2) are looking to bounce back from a 27-14 setback in Vancouver to the Edmonton Eskimos. "Kevin Glenn is very capable. I dont know why he doesnt get his respect. Hes a very capable quarterback. He can go on any team right now and fill in or take over." In turn, Lewis complimented Banks and the B.C. defence for their play-making abilities. "Theyll be able to capitalize on our mistakes, so we have to minimize the turnovers," Lewis said. "Theyre a team right now thats looking to make big plays. If they make big plays, theyll be back on that run, so we have to minimize that." After starting the season with two straight wins, the defending Grey Cup champion Lions dropped a 23-20 decision to the Riders in Regina on July 14 before also losing to the Esskimos at home six days later. Richard Sherman Womens Jersey. "Both of the last two games that weve lost, weve had opportunities to win those football games in the fourth quarter and we didnt make the plays," said B.C. quarterback Travis Lulay. "I had a critical turnover late in that game last week and that was essentially the difference in the football game." Lulay, who was picked off twice by the Eskimos, said the Stampeders will be confident after their comeback win last week. "I put myself in their shoes," he said. "Coming off a win the way they did, thats a big win. Thats gut-check to come back and win the way they did on their home turf. They were getting beat soundly in the fourth quarter, and to come back and find a way to make the plays that they did, they showed a lot of grit, a lot of determination, and youve got to admire that. So we know what kind of team were facing." The last time the two teams met was on Oct. 8 last season when Paul McCallum kicked a clutch 53-yard field goal as time ran out in the fourth quarter to give the Lions a narrow 33-31 win. "Weve seen it all against Calgary," Lulay said. "Its always a tough, hard-fought battle. We played them right down to the wire and won on literally on the last play of the game last year. The way games are going this year in the CFL, you know thats a very real possibility every single week, so you have to play good all 60 minutes." Stamps linebacker Juwan Simpson said that if you dont play hard until the final whistle sounds, opposing teams will take advantage of the opportunities that they are given. "It makes teams understand that when you have an opportunity to put away a team you have to," Simpson said. "You cant relax in this league because (teams) will come back and win." Calgary coach and general manager John Hufnagel referred to the matchup as a big game early in the season. "Usually the B.C.-Calgary matchups consist of really good football," Hufnagel said. "Thats the type of game Im looking forward to ... a game that will be a close game and decided late in the game." Rookie B.C. coach Mike Benevides agreed. "Its a huge game for both teams when you take a look at the records (and) you take a look at how tight the west is," Benevides said. "Were going to have to be at our best." ' ' '
