Michael Pineda, Twins stop Tigers 6-2, win four of five games in series

Minnesota Twins catcher Ryan Jeffers (39) and Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Michael Pineda (35) talked in the top of the 7th inning which was Pineda's last.

Michael Pineda allowed the first two batters of the seventh inning - yes, the seventh - to reach base, prompting a mound visit by Twins pitching coach Wes Johnson.

"He told me, 'It's OK. Just concentrate right now and try to execute the pitch and get a ground ball for a double play.' "Pineda said. "I said, 'Yes. I love it. I love the plan.' "

Pineda got a flyout for the first out, then got that ground ball - but the Twins couldn't turn an inning-ending double play and a run scored. Pineda took matters into his own hands at that point as rain fell upon Target Field.
