Hicks, Twins rally in 9th to beat Tigers 4-3

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Aaron Hicks and the Minnesota Twins want to do more than just play out the string. That was certainly evident Tuesday night.

Hicks beat the throw on a two-out bouncer up the middle in the ninth inning, allowing pinch-runner Chris Herrmann to score and rally the Twins to a 4-3 victory over the AL Central-leading Detroit Tigers.

"It's so emotional. Everything is so emotional. These guys are fighting to win a pennant. We're fighting to try to win a ballgame. Big three-run homer by them. Our guys kept coming back and they win it," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said after his team snapped the Tigers' four-game winning streak.
