Twins Vs. Tigers Score Update: Willingham Hits 30th Homer, Game Timed At Four

There haven't been many bright spots for the Minnesota Twins so far in the 2012 season, but one has certainly been outfielder Josh Willingham. Tonight, Willingham hit his 30th homer of the season, which temporarily ties him for third-most in the American League. The homer came off of Detroit Tigers starter Doug Fister, and tied the game at four in the bottom of the third.

It has stayed that way into the bottom of the fifth inning, as both Fister and Brian Duensing have settled down a bit. Duensing relinquished his four runs in the first two innings on a Jhonny Peralta single, a Gerald Laird triple and an Austin Jackson double.

Willingham's homer, meanwhile, brought in three runs for the Twins. Minnesota scored its first run in the same inning when Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder mishandled a Darin Mastroianni grounder.
