5 Stats to Know from the Detroit Tigers’ 5-4 Win over the Minnesota Twins

  • Three

The number of runs allowed by David Price, who rebounded from an awful start against the Yankees. Price didn’t have his best stuff, but battled through 6.1 innings of work to earn the win.

  • One

The number of hits surrendered by Joakim Soria in the ninth. The closer earned his eighth save.

  • Two

The number of holds picked up by Tigers relievers. Alex Wilson and Joba Chamberlain held the lead for Soria. The recently called-up Wilson has 2.45 ERA over the course of 3.2 innings this season.

  • .397

Jose Iglesias’ batting average after the game. The slick-fielding shortstop has been super with the bat this season. He went 3-for-5 with a run scored and a run driven in. He went yard (his first of the season) and finished a double short of the cycle.

  • Six

The number of walks drawn by the Tigers, easily outweighing the team’s collective three strikeouts. Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez, J.D. Martinez and Alex Avila all had a walk each. Anthony Gose drew two free passes.
