Detroit Tigers right-hander Alex Faedo completed five innings Thursday.

The 26-year-old became the first MLB pitcher since 2013 to start his big-league career by posting at least five innings and allowing no more than two runs in each of his first six games.

Two runs appeared to be too many, though, until Daz Cameron saved the Tigers’ offense with a go-ahead two-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning. With Cameron’s swing, the Tigers beat the Minnesota Twins, 3-2, at Comerica Park in the five-game series finale.

“Let the dog off the leash,” outfielder Derek Hill said.

“These guys are great,” Cameron said. “We all come up with different names and words, so it’s always exciting to hear different stuff from them. I’m excited right now, actually, because I just heard that. ‘Dog off the leash,’ unleash him, let him out That moment was a moment of unleash. “

Tigers' Daz Cameron rounds the bases after a two-run home run during the eighth inning against the Twins, Thursday, June 2, 2022, in Detroit.
