MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Victor Martinez homered and had four RBIs, leading the Detroit Tigers to a 13-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday.
    
Rajai Davis also connected for the Tigers, who have won two straight to earn a split of this four-game series.
    
Detroit trials Kansas City by two games in the AL Central and is one back of Seattle for the second AL wild card.
    
Minnesota scored 32 runs in winning the first two games of the series and Detroit had 21 in taking the last two.
    
The Tigers' 60 hits in the four games is their most in a four-game series since having 60 at Chicago from July 6-8, 1956. Minnesota set a franchise record for most hits allowed in a four-game series, surpassing the 59 yielded at Texas July 25-28, 2011.
