As the MLB season is into the last ten games or so, several teams are still fighting for a chance to be in the MLB Playoffs. Among those teams is the Minnesota Twins who currently hold the final wild card spot in the American League. On Saturday, Minnesota continued to hold that spot with a convincing 10-4 win against the Detroit Tigers. Here's the latest Twins vs. Tigers game recap with top players, box score statistics, a standings update, and a look at what's next on the schedule for the teams.

MLB game recap

In today's game, the Minnesota Twins found themselves trailing 3-2 heading into the eighth inning.

This was despite an early lead when Brian Dozier managed to score on a throwing error after a bunt single to third. Detroit scored three runs behind an Alex Presley single to right to score Ian Kinsler and a Nicholas Castellanos single to left to score both Presley and Miguel Cabrera.

As the game reached the eighth inning, that's when the Minnesota Twins exploded for eight runs. A barrage of hits helped to fuel the rally when Eddie Rosario singled to left to score Zack Granite, and Escobar singled to right to score Jorge Polanco. Robbie Grossman knocked in two RBIs with his single, while Jason Castro grounded out but Byron Buxton scored. A few batters later, Zack Granite was back at the plate.

This time he connected on a three-run home run measuring 356 feet to extend the lead to 10-3. Detroit would manage just one more run before the game was ultimately over.

Erwin Santana (16-8) pitched seven innings and struck out five batters in the win for the Twins today. On the other side, Daniel Stumpf was credited with the loss as he was on for the top of the eighth when Minnesota went off for eight runs to take the lead.

Standings and what's next

The Minnesota Twins boosted their record for the season to 81-74 while moving to 42-35 on the road. Minnesota is now on a three-game winning streak with a 5-5 record over their last ten games. They currently hold the lead for the remaining American League Wild Card spot by 4.5 games over the next team in the race.

Next up for Minnesota, another game at Detroit as they send Jose Berrios out for a start. Game time is scheduled for 12:10 p.m. Eastern Time.

The Detroit Tigers are 62-93 after the loss with a 34-46 home record. They've lost six-straight games and are nowhere near a playoff spot at this point in the MLB season. Detroit gets a chance to bounce back on Sunday when they send Buck Farmer to the mound for their early afternoon home game against Minnesota.
