Brayan Villarreal just wasn’t himself when it mattered. The Twins had the top of the order coming up and Villarreal walked Denard Span to lead off the inning. It was all downhill from there as Villarreal gave up a bases loaded double to Ryan Doumit, who has all four Minnesota RBIs on the night. The Tigers will need a spark in the ninth inning. They trail 4-2 with Delmon Young, Jhonny Peralta and Andy Dirks due up.
