Carpenter earns first MLB win, Tigers top Twins 7-5

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Ryan Carpenter turns 28 years old next week. The Detroit Tigers pitcher gave himself a nice early birthday gift on Saturday night: his first major league win.

Mikie Mahtook hit a tiebreaking three-run homer in the fifth inning, Carpenter pitched into the sixth inning and the Tigers beat the Minnesota Twins 7-5.

"This is something I've worked my whole life for and I definitely don't want it to be the last," said Carpenter, who made four starts earlier this season but had been out since May 31 with a strained right oblique. "I spent almost two months down in Florida rehabbing. It's kind of a long, hard process but I always told myself I'd get through it and I'd come back up here and get my first win."
