Jones homers in 7th to lead Tigers over Twins, 3-1

DETROIT (AP) — When Detroit outfielder JaCoby Jones came to the plate in the seventh inning of a tie game Thursday afternoon, he was well aware he was struggling at the plate after striking out in his first two at-bats against the Twins.
He chose to focus on something else — the walk-off home run he hit against the Kansas City Royals nearly two months ago — and came through again.
Jones hit Lance Lynn’s 3-1 fastball over the wall for the final two runs in Detroit’s 3-1 win.
