The Tigers' top relief pitching prospect's rude introduction to the big leagues continued, allowing two runs in just 1/3 of an inning. His rude introduction also came to an end. Rondon was sent back to Toledo after the game.
Two streaks were on the line for the Tigers against the Twins. The pitching staff's AL record tying four game streak of 10 strikeouts or more in a game and their five game winning streak. Only one streak would survive the afternoon.
