Game 122: Minnesota Twins (66-55) @ Detroit Tigers (69-47)

Wednesday August 19, 1987

Tigers 7, Twins 1

Although Dan Gladden and Mark Davidson tried to bring a little bit of home to Tiger Stadium by hanging 20+ pictures of the Metrodome in the clubhouse, the Twins’ road woes continued. Once again it wasn’t even close. The Tigers scored four runs in the second and the Twins never really got back into the game.

In the midst of the loss, Greg Gagne quietly participated in his 40th consecutive errorless game at shortstop. The team record is 42 games- held by Leo Cardenas.
