    DETROIT -- Kyle Gibson got a little help in one of his best starts this season.Its a lot easier to pitch with a 7-1 lead in the fifth, Gibson said.Jorge Polanco homered and drove in four runs, Brian Dozier added three more hits to his torrid second half and the Minnesota Twins beat the Detroit Tigers 8-1 on Tuesday night.The Tigers lost for the third time in 14 games against Minnesota, costing them precious ground in a crowded race for the second AL wild card.Gibson (6-9) dominated, allowing one run and five hits in eight innings. The win ended a four-start winless streak, including when Gibson allowed five runs in five innings to Detroit on Aug. 23.He had a couple nervous moments in there, but that was a great overall outing, Molitor said. Its not easy to get through that lineup with one run on five hits in eight innings.Kennys Vargas homered for the Twins, and Robbie Grossman drove in two runs.Matt Boyd (5-4) took the loss in his worst outing since June. He gave up seven runs, eight hits and a walk in 3 2/3 innings.I was just out of sync, Boyd said. I wasnt right physically. I feel great, but my mechanics were off. I couldnt repeat my delivery, and thats a recipe for disaster. That cant happen at this time of year.Dozier entered hitting .318 with 26 homers since the All-Star break. Hes hit safely in 17 consecutive games.Buck Farmer saved Detroits bullpen by pitching 4 1/3 scoreless innings, but now the Tigers long reliever will be unavailable for starts by Anibal Sanchez and Mike Pelfrey on Wednesday and Thursday. Sanchez has struggled all year, while Pelfrey will be pitching for the first time since July and is expected to be on a low pitch count.He was outstanding, and it helped us a ton, Ausmus said. That frees up the rest of the bullpen for the next couple days.Boyd got into trouble quickly, allowing two runs before recording an out. Dozier led off with a base hit and Polanco blooped a double down the right-field line. Grossman lined Boyds 11th pitch of the night into center for a two-run single, but the Tigers defense prevented further damage.Vargas hit a hard grounder up the middle, but Jose Iglesias fielded it behind second and got off a backhanded flip toward the bag. Ian Kinsler caught it in his bare hand and threw in one motion to turn the double play.Miguel Cabreras RBI single made it 2-1 in the bottom of the first, but Gibson took control after that.Polancos two-run homer gave the Twins a three-run lead in the third. Grossman followed with a double, giving the top three in Minnesotas order six hits in six plate appearances, including three doubles and a homer.Detroit loaded the bases in the fourth, but Gibson got Jarrod Saltalamacchia to pop out and end the inning.Polanco had two shots at the triple he needed for the cycle but popped out and walked.TRAINERS ROOMTwins: Miguel Sano was out of the lineup one day after leaving a game with stiffness and soreness in his lower back. Sano is listed as day to day but said he expects to miss two or three games.Tigers: Justin Upton didnt play after aggravating a calf injury on Monday. Upton, one of Detroits hottest hitters over the last three weeks, hopes to return within a day or two.OLYMPIAN IN THE HOUSEFor the second day in a row, a medalist from the 2016 Summer Olympics threw out the first pitch. After boxing gold medalist Claressa Shields did the honors on Monday, it was Canadian Shelina Zadorsky, who won bronze as a member of the womens soccer team after a college career at the University of Michigan.UP NEXTThe teams play the third of a four-game series Wednesday night, with Detroits Anibal Sanchez (7-13, 5.69) facing Minnesotas Tyler Duffey (8-11, 6.13). Sanchez has shown some signs of improvement, going 1-1 with a 3.34 ERA in his last five starts. Eddie Jackson Jersey .

Brad Jacobs and his Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., team took control of the game early. SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. -- One Tennessee high school basketball player was found guilty of aggravated rape and two others were found guilty of aggravated assault against a freshman teammate, a person familiar with the juvenile court case said Tuesday.The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the hearing Tuesday involving the Ooltewah High School students was closed to the public and no ruling was publicly announced immediately afterward. The defendants names havent been released because they were in juvenile court.The Chattanooga Times Free Press first reported the verdicts.The case arose Dec. 22 while the team from the Chattanooga area was playing in a tournament about 150 miles away in the resort town of Gatlinburg. Police in Gatlinburg said three Ooltewah players assaulted a freshman teammate with a pool cue.Gatlinburg police charged three players with the rape of one teammate, though the Hamilton County District Attorneys Office has indicated four freshman players were assaulted during that trip. Ooltewah High School is in Hamilton County, while Gatlinburg is part of Sevier County.Today was an incredibly sad day for all the young men involved here, said Eddie Schmidt, a lawyer representing a victims family in this case. Based on testimony in the case, he said, we can only conclude that the coaches involved in this case were either clueless as to what was going on or didnt give a darn about what was going on or implicitly encouraged what was going on.Schmidt also said the family he represents plans to sue the Hamilton County Board of Education in federal court.These events had been building not just for a couple of weeks, not just for a couple of months, but for years, Schmidt said. This was almost predictable, what happened.Hamilton County school officials didnt immediately respond to messages seeking comment.An investigation commissioned by Hamilton County officials showed Ooltewahs basketball team had a culture of hazing and bullying even before the Dec. 22 incident. But the investigation also said there was no evidence that Hamilton County school officials or Ooltewah High administrators knew or should have known such an incident would occur.The investigation results were released Aug. 19.The investigation by attorney Courtney Bullard showed that nine Ooltewah players said the team participated in an activity they called racking in before the Gatlinburg incident.dddddddddddd They said upperclassmen would turn out the lights in the locker room, grab a freshman and punch him from the neck down, without the intent to cause injury.Sevier County Judge Dwight Stokes rejected prosecutors attempts in March to have one defendant transferred to adult court.Sevier County Juvenile Court Judge Jeffrey Rader ruled Tuesday that the hearing for the three players would be closed except to those persons having a direct interest in the case.Rader also mentioned in his ruling that Gatlinburg police detective Rodney Burns was unable to testify because of the aggravated perjury charges he faces in Hamilton County regarding the case.According to an indictment filed against Burns in May, the detective testified there were no screams of anguish during the incident, even though his written reports noted that witnesses said they could hear the victim yelling. The indictment also says there was a discrepancy in Burns testimony about whether he tried to call other officials and report the case.Burns perjury case involves his testimony at a Feb. 15 preliminary hearing in Hamilton County for Ooltewah High officials Andre Montgomery, Karl Williams and Allard Nayadley, who faced charges of failing to report suspected child sex abuse to the proper authorities.Montgomery was the Ooltewah head coach, Williams the assistant coach and Nayadley an assistant principal at the time. The charges against Williams have since been dropped.Montgomery was indicted in May on four counts of failing to report child sexual abuse.Nayadley entered a pre-trial diversion program in May. If he complies with terms of that program, which include performing community service and taking a class on mandatory reporting, the charges can be removed from his record. He also recently announced he was resigning.Rick Smith, who was the Hamilton County schools superintendent at the time of the incident, announced in March that he would retire July 1 and take leave effective immediately.
