Fulmer, who was acquired through a trade prior to the game, observed from his new location in the home bullpen while donning a Twins uniform.

The first two games between the Twins (54-49) and Tigers (42-63) were split, and the rubber match will be played on Wednesday in the afternoon.

Matt Manning, the starting pitcher for the Tigers, pitched five innings for the first time since April 16. He did not get into much trouble despite walking four times and striking out once.

Eric Haase, the Tigers' catcher, hit an infield single to start the seventh. Following Schoop's walk, Javier Baez, Akil Baddoo, and Greene all singled in runs after him.
