Then it was former Twin Ben Revere tormenting Minnesota in the series finale Thursday at Target Field.The guy who paved the way for Span and Revere got the last laugh in a long line of former Twins center fielders. Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter, who spent his first 11 seasons in Minnesota, went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and an RBI double on Sunday to help Detroit earn a 5-2 win and a series victory.Hunter had a bottle of Dom Perignon waiting for him on ice when he got back to the Tigers clubhouse following the win.
