Twins sweep 3-game series from Tigers with 8-2 win

DETROIT (AP) Stephen Gonsalves is getting more comfortable running in from the bullpen to start a game.

The Minnesota Twins, who have been experimenting with an "opening pitcher," then bringing in a primary pitcher after an inning or two, got excellent results in Wednesday's 8-2 win over the Detroit Tigers.

Gabriel Moya started for the Twins, but was replaced by Gonsalves in the second inning, marking the sixth time this season they've used an opening pitcher. Gonsalves (1-2), who pitched six scoreless innings of one-hit ball and struck out four, picked up his first major league win.
