Tiger reliever Jose Valverde blew his first save opportunity of the season in a loss to the Minnesota Twins; 6 – 5.    But, it wasn’t entirely his fault.  The Tigers had trouble playing defense again when they couldn’t convert a couple of routine plays in the 9th inning.  Most importantly, the Tiger lead over the Cleveland Indians has shrunk to two games.  The Indians invade Comerica Park for an extremely important three game series this weekend with the Tigers.  GO TIGERS!
