Twins 3, Tigers 1  (90-54)

The Tigers picked up just six hits as they were held in check by Dean Chance in their rubber game with the Twins.  Like the day before, the lone run came on a solo homer.  This time it was Gates Brown who went yard with his fifth of the season.  Norm Cash had two hits and he was the only hitter to reach base twice.

Earl Wilson fell to 12-12 on the season.  He gave up three runs on five hits with nine strikeouts in the complete game loss.
