DETROIT (AP) — Eduardo Nunez hit a tiebreaking single in the eighth inning and the Minnesota Twins rallied for a 4-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday.

The Twins took advantage of poor defense by the Tigers in the late innings. Minnesota scored three runs in the eighth, spoiling another fine start by Detroit rookie Robbie Ray.

The Tigers led 3-1 with two outs in the eighth when Josmil Pinto singled to left field off Joba Chamberlain (1-2) with runners on first and second. One run scored on the hit, but the ball skipped past left fielder Rajai Davis for an error that tied the game and allowed Pinto to reach second.

Nunez followed with his single to make it 4-3.

Jared Burton (1-1) won in relief. Glen Perkins got four outs for his 10th save in 11 chances.
