Thome Hits 600th Homer, Tigers Lose To Twins 9-6

DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – The Detroit Tigers lose to the Minnesota Twins 9-6 in a game that saw the Twins’ Jim Thome hit his 600th home run on Monday.

As heard on 97.1 The Ticket – although it gave the Twins the lead in the game, Thome received a standing ovation from the Detroit crowd as he rounded the bases after his milestone homer.

Thome became the eighth player to reach 600, hitting a three-run shot off Daniel Schlereth in the seventh inning to give Minnesota a 9-5 lead.

An inning earlier, Thome reached 599 with a two-run homer off Rick Porcello (11-8) that broke a 3-all tie.

His achievement overshadowed a solo shot in the first inning by Detroit’s Delmon Young, who had been traded from the Twins to the Tigers earlier Monday.

Francisco Liriano (8-9) allowed five runs in six innings. Joe Nathan earned his 10th save.
