|Twins Cut AL Central Deficit to One
|MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Jeff Manship's first major league win was well-timed for the Minnesota Twins, who got a grand slam from Delmon Young and hung on for a 10-7 victory over the Kansas City Royals Friday night that cut Detroit's AL Central lead to one game.
The Twins and Tigers each have two games remaining.
Young had five RBIs, beginning with his first career slam in the first inning against Lenny DiNardo (0-3) that launched the Twins to their 14th win in their last 18 games.
Up 10-0, the Twins watched the Royals rally and eventually bring the tying run to the plate.
Zack Greinke's up next for Minnesota on Saturday. But the Tigers, who lost 8-0 to the Chicago White Sox, are in for a tense finish.
