MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota's Lance Lynn gave up five hits over 6 2/3 innings in his most efficient outing of the season, and Brian Dozier drove in three runs with a pair of doubles.
Lynn (2-4) lowered his jumbo ERA from 7.47 to 6.34 in his ninth start, striking out four and walking one. Dozier's two-run liner capped a three-run fifth for Minnesota, which won its third straight game.
Detroit's Matt Boyd (2-4) departed with a left oblique spasm after walking the first two batters of the bottom of the fifth. Boyd gave up two runs.
