DETROIT, May 26 (UPI) -- Max Scherzer tossed six innings of one-run ball and Avisail Garcia backed him with a bases-clearing triple Sunday in the Detroit Tigers' 6-1 win over Minnesota.

Scherzer (7-0) stretched his unbeaten streak to 10 consecutive starts since the beginning of the season while the Twins were losing for the 11th time in 12 games. The right-hander held Minnesota to one run on three hits with three walks and six strikeouts.

With the Tigers clinging to a 2-1 lead in the sixth, Garcia's three-run triple chased home Victor Martinez, Alex Avila and Omar Infante, breaking the contest open.

Torii Hunter homered for American League Central leading-Detroit, which took three of four games against Minnesota.

Mike Pelfrey (3-5) absorbed the loss, allowing five runs on five hits over 5 2/3 frames.

Jamey Carroll got the only RBI for the Twins.
