MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Nick Castellanos homered and drove in three runs, and Torii Hunter had two doubles and two RBIs to lead the Detroit Tigers to a 10-6 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Friday night.

Rick Porcello (3-1) gave up four runs and six hits with four strikeouts in five innings for the Tigers, who broke the game open with seven runs in the third. Rajai Davis had three hits to raise his average to .354.
Kevin Correia (0-3) gave up eight runs – seven earned – and eight hits in 2 1-3 innings for Minnesota. It was his shortest outing since going just two innings last Aug. 5 against the Royals.

Chris Colabello drove in his 27th run for the Twins, setting a franchise record for RBIs in April.
