Tigers beat Twins, clinch playoff spot
(Reuters) -- Doug Fister worked 6 1/3 strong innings and Austin Jackson capped a four-run rally with a two-run homer as visiting Detroit clinched a postseason berth and cut its magic number for clinching the American League Central to one.
Victor Martinez and Omar Infante each added a solo blast for the Tigers, who snapped a two-game slide. Detroit needs one win or a loss by the Cleveland Indians to lock up its third straight Central crown.
