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

"He's definitely not going to play today", manager Brad Ausmus said.

Out of his last 12 hits, five of them had been for extra bases, including three home runs.

Twins third baseman Miguel Sano was handed a one-game suspension for his role in a benches-clearing altercation Saturday against the Tigers, MLB announced Monday.

Paul Goldschmidt, Yasmany Tomas and Chris Iannetta each drove in two runs in a nine-run eighth inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks turned a close game into a 13-5 rout of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Tigers catcher James McCann offered his impressions of Jones' injury. Victor Martinez added three hits and two RBI. The Tigers put "Miggy" on the 10-day DL with a groin strain after he was hurt Friday night at Minnesota. He had an MRI Saturday morning and the Tigers were awaiting results to determine whether he would have to go on the 10-day disabled list. "I was kind of exhausted, relaxed and it worked out great".

He scored 11 points in the second quarter and even had a rare dunk. "I felt a lot better in the second half", Ibaka said. He averaged 1.3 points per game this postseason after averaging 5.1 points and 6.5 rebounds during the regular season.

Fulmer (2-1) surrendered one run and three hits in the first inning, but he finished seven strong innings and retired 20 of the final 22 batters he faced.

Twins manager Paul Molitor said the team thinks it has a "fairly legitimate case" as to why Major League Baseball should at least consider reducing the penalty against Sano. We're looking at him and he's got blood dripping down. The game is scheduled for a 2:10 p.m. start time and the Twins are listed as a small favorite to pick up the win.

Eddie Rosario hit a lead off home-run for the Twins in the 5th inning, but the Twins were still down 7-2 entering the 6th.

Twins: LHP Buddy Boshers was recalled from Triple-A Rochester just for the day to take the place of RHP Justin Haley, who was put on the disabled list with biceps tendinitis. Buddy Boshers finished up the 3rd, and pitched scoreless 4th and 5th innings.

The Twins didn't think Haley's pitch to Jones called for retaliation. Left fielder Danny Santana dropped a fly ball for an error. Two runs scored, as Castro had a tough angle to throw to first. Detroit went single, groundout, walk, single, walk, strikeout, double, single to score 5 more runs.
