Rosario's home run occurred after Jorge Polanco's single off Jimenez knotted the game at 3-3. Tigers catcher James McCann tried to corral Sano, and when his mitt made contact with Sano, he responded by throwing a forearm shiver to McCann's chest.
Tigers starting pitcher Matthew Boyd threw a pitch behind Sano, and the Twins slugger apparently took exception.
Justin Verlander stumbled again, Miguel Cabrera left after straining his right groin and the Detroit Tigers wasted a three-run lead Friday night against the Minnesota Twins, who burst ahead when Eddie Rosario hit a three-run homer that capped a six-run sixth inning.
Verlander, whose ERA rose to 6.04, allowed four runs, three hits and six walks - one shy of his career high - five-plus innings.
Cabrera owns a.268/.369/.464 triple-slash line with three home runs through 16 games this season. Boyd beat the Twins on April 11 with six scoreless innings. After Hicks hit a double with two outs in the same inning, Jones was hit in flush in the face by a pitch.
The Tigers will have their chance to get a win against Twins starter Adalberto Mejia, a left-hander who was originally slated to start Wednesday against Cleveland.
Twins closer Brandon Kintzler earned his 4th save of the year.
Detroit struck first with two runs in the top of the third off Santiago.
"We just hope he's all right", Detroit outfielder Justin Upton said.
The Detroit Tigers announced Saturday that it placed first baseman Miguel Cabrera on the 10-day disabled list with a strained groin.
