DETROIT (AP) — Jake Odorizzi loves the way he’s pitching.The Minnesota Twins righty only wishes he could have discovered this form in April or May Burch Smith Jersey , not September.In his first start after losing a no-hitter in the eighth inning against the New York Yankees, Odorizzi only allowed a check-swing single in the first six innings of a 6-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers.“It is nice to get these good starts, but it isn’t ideal to have them at the end of the season,” he said. “You’d rather do this in midseason, but you also can’t be picky. This is good going into next year.”Odorizzi didn’t get out of the seventh, allowing two runs on three hits, but he’s given up three runs on four hits in 13 2/3 innings in the two strong performances.“I think I had better command tonight than I did the last time,” he said.Chris Gimenez homered and Tyler Austin drove in three runs for the Twins, who have won three straight.“There are always things to play for Blaine Boyer Jersey , individually and collectively,” Twins manager Paul Molitor said. “You want to win as many games as possible as you wind down the last couple weeks.”The Tigers have lost seven of nine, including six straight at home.Mikie Mahtook, who is hitting .288 with six homers and 14 RBIs in his last 20 games, drove in all of Detroit’s runs. He was hitting .185 on Aug. 22.“He made a great adjustment with his hands, and now he’s making much better contact,” Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said.Daniel Norris (0-5) pitched a season-high 5 1/3 innings, allowing two runs on five hits and three walks.“I was really happy with my first five innings,” he said. “I was locating the fastball and spinning the slider Trevor Cahill Jersey , and I had a curveball to change speeds. I even threw a few changeups.“I just started leaving things up in the sixth, which is when I was getting tired.”Norris was making his fourth start after missing four months with a groin injury.“This is basically a kid in his third week out of spring training, so he’s not ready to go deep,” Gardenhire said.The game was scoreless in the sixth when Jorge Polanco led off with a double to left. Logan Forsythe followed with a groundout off Norris’ glove, allowing Polanco to take third. Robbie Grossman walked before Austin’s RBI single to center.“(Norris) mixed his pitches well and was locating everything,” Austin said. “He threw me a couple good changeups, then left one up. With a guy like that, it is good when he misses up and I was able to put a good swing on it.”Jake Cave made it 2-0 with a single off second baseman Dawel Lugo’s glove, ending Norris’ night. Drew VerHagen escaped the inning without further damage.“That’s probably a double-play ball Melky Cabrera Jersey , but we’ve got a young second baseman who took a drop step instead of crossing over,” Gardenhire said of Cave’s base hit. “If we turn the double play, the inning is over and Norris comes out smelling like roses.”Gimenez homered off Sandy Baez in the seventh to make it 3-0. Austin added a two-run double later in the inning to chase Baez.Detroit’s offense finally got to Odorizzi in the seventh, with a pair of singles setting up Mahtook’s two-run triple. Reliever Matt Magill struck out next two hitters to end the threat.Magill pitched a scoreless eighth and Trevor Hildenberg got the ninth for his seventh save, allowing Mahtook’s two-out RBI single.Miguel Sano played for the first time since a leg injury on Sept. 5 and struck out in all four at-bats.“He had some big swings and got caught guessing a couple times with two strikes,” Molitor said. “Obviously, there’s some rust.”TRAINER’S ROOMTwins: OF Eddie Rosario missed Tuesday’s game and could be out for the season after aggravating a right quad strain Monday against the Tigers. Rosario will be evaluated on Thursday, but Molitor said he will be very cautious when deciding if he will play again this year.Tigers: 3B Jeimer Candelario left the game with back spasms and will be evaluated on Wednesday. Gardenhire said he expects Candelario to miss at least two games. … RHP Michael Fulmer will meet with Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday to get a second opinion on his knee injury and could have surgery as soon as Thursday. If the examination confirms a torn meniscus, it will be the third time he’s had the same injury repaired since 2013.UP NEXTThe teams finish their three-game series Wednesday afternoon , with Detroit’s Spencer Turnbull making his first major league start after making his big league debut in relief on Friday. Gabriel Moya (3-1, 4.73) will serve as the Twins’ opener for the second time in three days. TheChicago Cubs placedshortstop Addison Russell on the 10-day disabled list retroactive to Monday witha sprained left middle finger and added newly acquired infielder Daniel Murphy to the major league roster.This is another setback for Russell after he had a foot injuryin 2017 on his way to 110 games played. The 2016 All-Star is slashing .259/.326/.359 with five home runs and 37 RBIthis season as Chicago looks to win its second World Series in three years.Russell slashed .238/.321/.417 with 21 home runs and 95 RBI in 2016 but saw his run-production totals drop last season to .239/.304/.418 with 12 homers and 43 RBI. He has been a solid source of production in the Cubs lineup at times, but Chicago could miss his glove the most if he is out for significant time.The 24-year-old was responsible for 19 total defensive runs saved above average in 2015, 19 in 2016 and 15in 2017, per FanGraphs. He is one of the best defensive shortstops in the league and an anchor for the team's infield defense.The Cubs will likely turn toward the versatile Javier Baez to play shortstop until Russell is ready to return.While Baez is also an impressive fielder and gives Chicago another power source, locking him in at shortstop takes away the value he provides by being able to play a number of different positions, depending on matchups. Murphy and Ben Zobrist can play second while Baez plays short.
