Justin Upton crushes 9th inning walk-off to cap Tigers' comeback win over Twins

DETROIT -- Justin Upton smashed a two-run, walk-off home run in the ninth inning, capping a dramatic comeback by the Detroit Tigers Saturday night at Comerica Park.

The Tigers led 5-0 after the first inning, fell behind 11-6 and then steadily climbed back into the game until Upton unleashed the ninth inning drama to beat the Minnesota Twins 12-11.

The Twins snapped a six-game winning streak, while the Tigers authored a ninth-inning comeback for the first time this year and avoided falling 12 games under .500 for the first time since 2015.

The Tigers put five on the board in the first in an inning that was extended when Nicholas Castellanos got an infield hit with two outs. Then McCann crushed the first pitch he saw from Jose Berrios to left field for a grand slam.

After falling behind 11-6, the Tigers chipped away with a run in the seventh and three more in the eighth, including a two-run home run by Jose Iglesias.

Tigers reliever Shane Greene struck out Miguel Sano with the bases loaded in the top of the ninth to keep the margin at only one run. Mikie Mahtook led off the bottom of the ninth with a single against Matt Belisle and then, with the crowd on its feet, Upton crushed his no-doubter to left field.

NOTABLE

* Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera left the game in the seventh inning with lower back tightness and is day-to-day, the team said. John Hicks replaced Cabrera at first.

* Twins starter Jose Berrios became the first Major League starter to allow five runs in the first inning in back-to-back starts since Zach Britton in 2011.

* Tigers starter Jordan Zimmermann, coming off two strong outings, didn't make it out of the fourth on Saturday. His problems began in the third when he walked No. 9 hitter Jason Castro. After two singles, Joe Mauer hit a bases-clearing double. Two batters later, Eddie Rosario tied the game at 5 with a mammoth, 445-foot, two-run home run.

* McCann's grand slam in the first inning was the second of his career. The other came July 31, 2016, against the Houston Astros and former University of Arkansas teammate Dallas Keuchel.

* After going 13 1/3 innings without allowing a run, Tigers reliever Daniel Stumpf has given up runs in each of his last two outings.

* Tigers reliever Edward Mujica has allowed home runs in four of five outings since being selected from Triple-A Toledo. He gave up a two-run home run to Joe Mauer in the sixth inning Saturday night.

* Tigers right fielder Alex Presley walked and singled in his first game back since returning from the disabled list. 

* Tigers center fielder Mikie Mahtook doubled in the first and tripled in the seventh. He has five consecutive multi-hit games, the most in his career. He has two hits in seven of his last eight games. 

UP NEXT

The Tigers and Twins wrap up their three-game series on Sunday at 1:10 p.m. Matthew Boyd (5-6, 5.64 ERA) will face Ervin Santana (12-7, 3.27).
