Justin Upton hammers walk-off two-run home run

Twins Extend Win Streak To Six Games

Almost four hours later, after nine back-and-forth innings, Detroit Tigers outfielder Justin Upton was patient in his dramatic final at-bat.

Down 11-7, after blowing a 5-0 lead, the Tigers scored three times in the bottom of the eighth to make a game of it.

Joe Mauer's three-run double and Eddie Rosario's two-run homer, a 445-foot drive over the out-of-town scoreboard in right-centerfield, tied the score in the third.

Mikie Mahtook lined a single to right-center field off reliever Matt Belisle (0-2) to start the ninth and Upton followed with his 22nd home run off a 2-1 fastball.

Upton hit a sacrifice fly in the seventh, and McCann hit into a run-scoring forceout in the eighth and scored on Jose Iglesias' home run against Trevor Hildenberger that cut Detroit's gap to 11-10.
