TWINS 7, TIGERS 6

Dominican Republic native Miguel Sano had a big day as Major League Baseball played a spring training game on the island for the first time in 20 years.

Sano homered, singled and drove in three runs for Minnesota. Fellow countryman Nelson Cruz doubled and singled.

Two Detroit players from the Dominican also did well. Jorge Bonifacio hit a home run and starter Ivan Nova pitched a scoreless inning.
