Twins top Tigers 10-4 for 4-game sweep, close on wild card

DETROIT (AP) Eduardo Escobar may be having the most unpredicted success on the surprising Minnesota Twins.

Escobar hit his 20th home run, Jorge Polanco also went deep and Minnesota beat the Detroit Tigers 10-4 on Sunday to complete a four-game sweep that moved the Twins closer to securing a wild-card berth in the playoffs.

"A part-time player most of the year and he ends up with 20 homers. I don't know if anybody would have projected that," Twins manager Paul Molitor said.
