Glen Perkins blows save, picks up win Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Twins closer Glen Perkins blew a save opportunity Tuesday but still ended up with a win in his team's 4-3 victory over the Tigers.

Perkins (4-3) was handed a 2-0 lead after a brilliant performance by Ricky Nolasco, and he served up a three-run home run to put his team in a hole. However, the offense delivered a walkoff win in the bottom half of the ninth to take Perkins off the hook. The closer's recent struggles continue, as he's now allowed runs in four straight appearances and six of his last eight games, serving up five home runs during that stretch. Perkins owns a 3.65 ERA and 66:11 K:BB ratio in 61 2/3 innings.

Ricky Nolasco delivers eight scoreless innings Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Twins pitcher Ricky Nolasco didn't factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing just five hits and one walk in eight scoreless innings while striking out five in his team's 4-3 win over the Tigers.

Nolasco came through with his best start of the season Tuesday, but closer Glen Perkins surrendered a three-run bomb in the ninth to deny him the win. Nolasco has actually held the opposition to two earned runs or fewer in four of his last five starts, but he still owns a 5.34 ERA and 104:35 K:BB ratio in 148 1/3 innings. He's slated to face the Diamondbacks Monday.

Oswaldo Arcia day to day with back injury
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Twins outfielder Oswaldo Arcia is day to day after tweaking his upper back on a swing in Monday's 8-6 loss to the Tigers.

Arcia suffered the injury in the sixth inning and was replaced in the eighth by a pinch-hitter. After the game, manager Ron Gardenhire told MLB.com he hopes the injury is not a serious one, but should know more Tuesday.

Arcia is second on the team with 18 home runs in just 333 at-bats, while hitting .231/.304/.456 overall.
