DETROIT -- Victor Martinezs drive to left-center field stayed in the air just long enough for Eddie Rosario to make the catch before running into the wall.Another opportunity had come and gone for the Detroit Tigers.Were in an offensive funk that started before this series, and theres not really much you can do about that, manager Brad Ausmus said. We barreled up a lot of balls again today, but they were either right at someone or they ran them down.Max Kepler and Eddie Rosario homered off Francisco Rodriguez in the ninth, and the Minnesota Twins scored three runs in the inning to beat the Tigers 4-1 on Wednesday. The winning rally came immediately after Rosarios catch took a big hit away from Martinez with two on in the eighth.Detroit wasted a fine start by Justin Verlander, who gave up a run and two hits in eight innings. Francisco Rodriguez (1-1) retired the first two batters of the ninth before Kepler sent a drive to right field to break a 1-all tie.Rodriguez then made a throwing error and appeared to be shaken up, but after a conference at the mound he stayed in the game and allowed a two-run shot by Rosario.Ryan Pressly (3-5) earned the win in relief, and Brandon Kintzler pitched the ninth for his sixth save.Minnesotas Joe Mauer and Detroits Ian Kinsler homered in the first inning, and that was all the scoring until the ninth.The last-place Twins took two of three from the playoff-chasing Tigers, with Detroit managing only four runs in the series. Verlander tried to look on the bright side.If anything, I would very easily be able to look at this series and say, `OK, well, we didnt win the series but we pitched extremely well and I think thats a good sign moving forward, he said. The offense comes and goes. You cant always rely on offense, but if you can go in night in and night out and your starters can give you a chance to win, thats how you win a lot of ballgames.Verlander struck out nine and walked two. Minnesotas Ervin Santana allowed one run and six hits in seven-plus innings.Santana hadnt allowed a homer since June 19, but Kinsler sent his first pitch of the game over the fence in left, tying the score at 1. The Tigers had only one more baserunner through five innings, then squandered opportunities in the sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth.Detroit had runners on first and second and nobody out in the sixth when Cameron Maybin hit into a double play. The Tigers had men on second and third in the seventh when James McCann flied out to end the inning. With two on and two out in the eighth, Martinez sent his drive to left-center, but Rosario made the running catch before bouncing off the wall.Detroit had two hits in the ninth but didnt score.STOPPAGEThere was a delay in the seventh when a fan ran onto the field and eluded security for a while. He eventually stopped around the edge of the infield and was tackled.It was a rather long delay, Twins manager Paul Molitor said. You can find humor in it, I guess, but I think with everything that goes on these days, my first reaction is get the heck out of the way. You just dont want to take any chances. I think that was affirmed by the tackle.TRAINERS ROOMTigers: RHP Jordan Zimmermann (right neck strain) is expected to throw a bullpen session Thursday, and Ausmus says if that goes well, hell probably go on a rehab assignment Sunday. ... OF Tyler Collins was scratched before the game because of neck spasms. ... LHP Daniel Norris (right oblique strain) will have another rehab start Saturday.UP NEXTTwins: RHP Tyler Duffey (5-6) takes the mound Thursday night in the opener of a four-game series at Boston.

Pelfrey did not make it out of the second inning Saturday.---Follow Noah Trister at Terrance Ferguson Jersey . Most important, perhaps, it went off without a hitch. Organizers poked a little fun at the now-infamous opening ceremony gaffe that saw only four out of five snowflakes open up into rings, leaving the Olympics logo one ring short. Steven Adams Jersey . Scott Kazmir allowed four hits in seven shutout innings, Michael Brantley hit a two-run homer in a three-run first inning and the Indians maintained their hold on an AL wild-card spot with a 4-1 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday night. . PAUL, Minn. Ray Allen Jersey . But now that hes in the NHL, the Calgary Flames centre showed big improvement in that department by scoring the winner in the eighth round of a 5-4 shootout victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday. Shawn Kemp Jersey . After taking two big hits this week -- losing at home and dropping back-to-back games for the first time all season -- Indiana struck back by playing its most complete game of the year. BERKELEY, Calif. -- The 7,500 mile trip, 17-hour time difference, and all the hoopla surrounding the first college football game played in Australia in three decades was easy.The hard part for the Cal Bears was coming home.We felt great there, the real problem was getting back here, senior quarterback Davis Webb said.Fortunately for the Bears, they had a bye week to regroup from their globe-trotting, and by all accounts theyve recovered from the jetlag and hangover from a trip that was punctuated with a 51-32 victory over Hawaii at ANZ Stadium in Sydney on Aug. 26.And now its all business for Cal as it prepares for Saturdays matchup with San Diego State.We feel good now, weve adjusted, Webb said. Now were ready for San Diego State.The Bears practiced in full pads twice and had two light practice days during their bye week, Cal coach Sonny Dykes said.We probably needed an open week coming off of that long trip to Australia and the travel and our guys getting rolling back academically, Dykes said. It was good to have a little bit of time to get back in the flow last week and get back and get our feet under us.Getting back in the flow was especially important because the Bears missed some practices in Sydney due to bad weather and stadium issues. Dykes said hes determined to make up for that lost time he believes was a factor in hiss team playing a less physical game than he expected.dddddddddddd felt that coming out of fall camp that we were a really physical football team, and then we got to Australia and we had some field issues and I felt like in some ways we lost that physical edge that we had had in camp, Dykes said. It felt like we needed to get it back last week.Senior offensive lineman Chris Borrayo might have been the only player that didnt need to get it back. He never adjusted to the Australian time change in the first place.The funny thing is, coming back from Australia, I was never accustomed to the jetlag from there, so every night Id be waking up around 5 oclock or 6 oclock, just trying get some more rest, he said. When I got back here it took me about a day adjusted back to the time.Cal players took in some of the culture along with the football.Sophomore defensive end Cameron Saffle visited Sydneys iconic Harbour Bridge and Opera House. He and sophomore nickelback Trey Turner learned about indigenous culture during a meeting with aboriginal Australians.A lot of our team had never been out of the country so it was pretty awesome, he said. The trip was an amazing experience. It gave our team a lot of perspective.
