MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -Minnesota starter Scott Baker left the Twins' game against Detroit after three innings Saturday night with a reaggravated right groin injury.
The Twins said Baker was removed for precautionary reasons. The right-hander threw 43 pitches in the first three innings, retiring nine of 10 batters with two strikeouts. Detroit's lone hit off Baker came when Mike Lamb couldn't hang onto Edgar Renteria's slow grounder in the third. But Baker retired the next three batters.
The Twins bullpen responded with six innings of five-hit ball in a 4-2 win over the Tigers.
Baker is 2-0 with a 4.09 ERA. On April 26, a mild groin strain forced him to leave his start against the Texas Rangers in the fifth inning.
