MINNEAPOLIS — While Jose Berrios struggled through a four-start stretch that began in mid-April, the Minnesota Twins were reeling for most of that time. His last two turns have been masterpieces, and maybe the injury-affected Twins have found a groove again. Logan Morrison forced in the go-ahead run with a four-pitch walk in the eighth inning after striking out in his first three at-bats, propelling Berrios and the Twins to a 4-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Monday night.

Carpenter had three hits after being
MINNEAPOLIS — With an important insurance run standing at third base in the speedy Byron Buxton, Minnesota Twins catcher Bobby Wilson tried to pull off a surprise with a sacrifice bunt. Wilson fouled off the attempt, never a good feeling for a journeyman that has played 329 major league games over the past 11 seasons to miss his chance. He didn’t miss his next opportunity. Wilson hit a slider from St. Louis reliever Luke Gregerson into the left field stands for a two-run homer to
