Tigers CF Jones hit in face by pitch, taken to hospital

Tigers CF Jones hit in face by pitch, taken to hospital

"Doesn't give you time to think about anything".

Detroit Tigers' James McCann, right, is contratulated by JaCoby Jones on his solo home run off Minnesota Twins pitcher Hector Santiago during the sixth inning of a baseball game Friday, April 21, 2017, in Minneapolis.

Major League Baseball has suspended Miguel Sano one game for his involvement in an altercation during Saturday's game versus the Tigers.

Kyle Gibson (0-3) was hammered by Detroit, giving up seven runs (six earned), eight hits and two walks in 2 2/3 innings. Jim Adduci had three hits and two RBIs on the day he arrived from Triple-A Toledo and Alex Avila hit a two-run homer for the Tigers.

The Tigers and Twins close out a three-game series a day after benches cleared and punches were thrown. "I was kind of exhausted, relaxed and it worked out great". Cabrera had blasted 3 hits against the Twins before having to leave the game due to his injury.

Prior to his call-up by the Twins, Sano was regarded as one of the game's top prospects for years on end, being ranked as highly as No. 4 overall by prior to the start of 2014. "Bottom line, if that slide last night is not deemed an illegal slide, we should just get rid of the rule".

Hicks hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning, prompting Molitor to go to backup catcher Chris Gimenez as his seventh relief pitcher. McCann added a sacrifice fly later in the inning.

Toronto manager John Gibbons said the new 10-day DL was "definitely a factor" in the move.

Jones took a 90 miles per hour fastball from Twins reliever Justin Haley to the face in the third. Buddy Boshers finished up the 3rd, and pitched scoreless 4th and 5th innings. Hicks has hit.424 in 10 games with the Mud Hens.

The Twins got a run back in the 5th on Eddie Rosario's second home run of the year, making the score 7-2. They're also 10-2 in Fulmer's last 12 starts after scoring five runs or more in their previous game and are 13-5 in their last 18 road games when playing a team with a losing home record.
