Castro's hit starts rally, leads Tigers past Twins 4-2

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Harold Castro completed the minor league season and was home in Venezuela spending time with his son and focusing on the offseason when he got a surprise phone call to return and play with the Detroit Tigers.

Castro's first career hit started an eighth-inning rally that led the Tigers to a 4-2 victory over Minnesota on Tuesday in a game in which Joe Mauer set the Twins' record for reaching base.

"I was relaxing with my son," Castro said. "I was taking time with him because of eight months here. I was eating with him when I received the call to the major leagues."
