MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Jordan Zimmermann hasn't required much run support this year. Justin Upton gave him all he needed in the first inning Saturday.

Zimmermann won his fifth straight start to begin his first season with Detroit, and Upton hit a three-run homer for the Tigers in their 4-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins.

"Give him a three-run lead, we're pretty confident he can work with that," said Upton, whose second homer of the year reached the second deck in left-center. "If we can fight and get on the board early, and let our guys work, we'll be all right."

In hitting his 10th home run in 21 games, Story tied George Scott in 1966 as the fastest player in major league history to reach that home run total.


Marlins' Conley pulled with no-no in 8th

MILWAUKEE (AP) Miami Marlins manager Don Mattingly said it was an easy decision to pull Adam Conley after 116 pitches despite the lefty having not allowed a hit for 7 2/3 innings.
