• Fielder's homer helps Tigers pad Central lead

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Sep 30, 2012
    Prince Fielder hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning to lift Detroit to a 2-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday, moving the Tigers to a season-high three game lead over the White Sox in the AL Central. "We're not all the way happy yet," Fielder said. The Detroit Tigers finally have a little bit of breathing room in what has been an air-tight AL Central title race. While Anibal Sanchez has posted inconsistent results since joining the Detroit Tigers , he proved nearly unhittable his last time out. The third baseman, who also leads the AL with 136 RBIs and a .327 average, has a chance to become the first player to lead the league in all three categories since Boston's Carl Yastrzemski in 1967.
