    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Aug 21, 2013
    Justin Morneau had a season high four hits, including a two-run homer and a two-run double, and Glen Perkins struck out Miguel Cabrera with two on for the final out to help the Minnesota Twins hold off the Detroit Tigers in a 6-3 win Tuesday night. Mike Pelfrey registered his second straight quality start and Justin Morneau provided four RBIs while falling a triple short of the cycle to help the Twins to a 6-3 win over the first-place Tigers at Comerica Park. The Twins clung to the victory despite the Tigers sending the reigning American League Most Valuable Player Miguel Cabrera to the plate with two outs and two runners on in the ninth inning. Gardenhire also said before the game he didn't plan to put Mauer behind the plate during the series, insisting the decision had nothing to do with Mauer's mask getting hit by a lot of baseballs when he played catcher Monday against the New York Mets .
