Former Hog Drew Smyly gets 2nd career win

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Prince Fielder had three hits and two RBIs and the struggling Detroit Tigers offense broke out in a big way in a 10-6 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Friday night.

 

Alex Avila drove in three runs on two doubles, Drew Smyly (2-1) gave up four runs - three earned - on six hits in five innings and Brennan Boesch added three hits and two RBIs for the Tigers, who bounced back from a three-game sweep at the hands of AL Central-leading Cleveland.

 

Denard Span had three hits for the Twins, who got another poor outing from their starting pitcher. Anthony Swarzak (0-4) gave up six runs on nine hits in 3 2-3 innings in his first start since April 19.
