Jeimer Candelario homers in 10th as Detroit Tigers beat Minnesota Twins, 4-2

MINNEAPOLIS — The Detroit Tigers snapped their 16-inning scoreless streak in the sixth inning Wednesday, as Harold Castro smacked a solo home run to right-center field at Target Field.

He launched another solo shot in the eighth.

In the 10th inning, Jeimer Candelario smoked a go-ahead two-run home run to straightaway center field on a first-pitch fastball from right-handed reliever Trevor Megill. He also drove in Jonathan Schoop, the free extra-innings runner on second base.

“That’s the Candy I need to be consistent with,” Candelario said. “If I can be consistent with that, a lot of things are going to go our way. I’ve got to be consistent with putting the barrel on the ball, and thank God that I helped my team win.”
