Twins assume first in AL Central with 7-6 win against Tigers

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Jake Cave hit a pair of home runs, Kenta Maeda finished off his regular season with another strong start and the Minnesota Twins beat the Detroit Tigers 7-6 on Wednesday night to take over sole possession of the AL Central lead for the first time since late August.

Eddie Rosario added a two-run homer for Minnesota (35-22), which has won four straight. The Twins moved a half-game ahead of the second-place Chicago White Sox (34-22).

"We haven't really talked about the standings or anything like that," Cave said. "Everybody just kind of knows that our plan was to win out. Why wouldn't you just want to win every game? That's best-case scenario, so that's what we're doing these last few games."
