/Associated PressHow long will he keep going? It depends how long he keeps getting people out [url=]Guillermo Heredia Jersey[/url] , how long teams will keep wanting him in their rotation. Jackson has played almost his entire career on a series of one-year contracts, the exceptions being a two-year, $13.35 million deal when he was arbitration-eligible in 2010 and the four-year, $52 million deal he signed with the Cubs in December 2012.He's on a $1.5 million contract this season but, as he says, pitching now is much more about the passion for the game than the number on the paycheck.So how long?"My wife asks me," Jackson says. "My kids ask me. Honestly, the way my body feels鈥擨 feel pretty good. I don't really have a timetable."His wife does. Erika Jackson has been fine with all the moving around. She grew up in a military family, too, and eventually joined the Air Force. She and Edwin met in the offseason after he first made it to the big leagues, but she was still on active duty then and going from Alabama to South Korea to Arizona to Dubai."I literally in my life have not lived anywhere more than five years," she says.It wasn't until she returned from Dubai that they got married. Now they have three kids: six-year-old Exavier [url=][/url] , four-year-old Elan and seven-month-old Elijah."We're officially the Jackson Five," Edwin says with a laugh.Exavier is old enough to join his father at the ballpark, and watching how much fun he has had, Erika wants Edwin to keep playing long enough that Elijah gets a chance to experience the same thing.Eventually they'll settle down to a life that doesn't include moving from team to team and city to city in search of another club that wants Edwin to pitch. Or maybe they won't settle down. Maybe they can't.They spend their winters in Arizona, but Erika already has her eyes on another move."I would guess that in the next two-three years, we'll be somewhere else," she says. "I was just in Charlotte. I liked it, and I told Edwin maybe we could move there."And about that dog, the one the kids keep asking Edwin to get?"It's actually Edwin who wants a dog," Erika says. "Now the kids want one, too. Last year I told them, 'No [url=]Mike Marjama Jersey[/url] , you guys got a baby.'"The dog can wait, at least for another year.Danny Knobler covers Major League Baseball as a national columnist for Bleacher Report.Follow Danny on Twitter and talk baseball. DETROIT (AP) — Tyler Austin looked pretty comfortable in his debut with the Minnesota Twins.Austin hit a two-run homer, Kyle Gibson pitched seven effective innings and the Twins beat the Detroit Tigers 4-3 on Saturday night.Austin was acquired in the July 30 trade that sent Lance Lynn to the New York Yankees. The 26-year-old Austin, who hit .223 with eight homers in 34 games for the Yankees before the move, was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Friday.“He looks like a modern-day player — his first three times up were a walk, a strikeout and a homer,” manager Paul Molitor said. “That’s what today’s game seems to be about.”Austin connected on a Francisco Liriano slider in the fifth.“My first time up he threw me some good changeups, and I swung through them,” he said. “I swung through another changeup on 2-0, but he left a slider over the plate on 2-1 and I put a good swing on it.”Minnesota improved to 2-4 on its seven-game trip. Gibson (6-9) allowed one run and seven hits, struck out four and walked two.“The defense played great,” Gibson said. “My fastball command was a lot better tonight [url=][/url] , and that means more balls in play. They really picked me up when I needed them.”Detroit lost for the seventh time in eight games. Liriano (3-7) allowed three runs and six hits in five innings while dropping to 0-6 in his last 13 outings.“Every time I feel like I’m getting into a rhythm, I’ll walk a couple guys or make a couple bad pitches and it gets away from me,” he said. “I’ve got to find a way to stay focused on the next pitch instead of getting frustrated when I make a mistake.”The Tigers rallied in the ninth against Trevor Hildenberger, who got a chance to close after Fernando Rodney was traded to Oakland on Thursday.Victor Martinez led off with a walk, and Niko Goodrum followed with a drive to right for his 12th homer. Jim Adduci then singled, but James McCann struck out looking, rookie Victor Reyes flied out, and JaCoby Jones struck out for the third time.“We needed one more hit, and we just couldn’t get it,” Detroit manager Ron Gardenhire said. “Mac had a great at-bat, but they got him on the 3-2 pitch, Victor hit the ball hard but right at someone [url=]Edwin Diaz Jersey[/url] , and then they get the strikeout to end it.”It was Hildenberger’s first save of the year and the second of his career, both coming at Comerica Park.The Tigers jumped in front on McCann’s RBI single in the second but didn’t score again off Gibson.“I’ve known Gibby for a long time, and you can really see how he has learned to pitch,” said Gardenhire, who managed the Twins in Gibson’s first two seasons. “We’ve got a lot of young hitters, and he took advantage of them.”The Twins tied it in the third when Eddie Rosario scored on Liriano’s wild pitch.Austin’s ninth homer gave the Twins a 3-1 lead, and Rosario’s RBI double off Zach McAllister put Minnesota ahead by three in the sixth.TRAINER’S ROOMTwins: 1B Logan Morrison was placed on the disabled list, and he will undergo season-ending hip surgery. . RHP Michael Pineda (elbow) pitched three scoreless innings for Class-A Fort Myers in his second appearance after Tommy John surgery.Tigers: LHP Daniel Norris pitched two innings for Detroit’s Gulf Coast League team, allowing one unearned run. He has been sidelined since April 30 with a groin injury.GOODRUM HAUNTS OLD TEAM AGAINGoodrum’s homer was his second in as many days and his third of the season against Minnesota. Goodrum, who was drafted by Minnesota in 2010 and made his major league debut with the Twins last season, is hitting .320 with eight RBIs in 25 at-bats against them this season.MORRIS HONORED ON SUNDAYBefore Sunday’s series finale, the Tigers will retire the No. 47 of newly inducted Hall of Famer Jack Morris. Morris won World Series championships with three teams [url=][/url] , including the Tigers and Twins, and will be the ninth player to have his jersey retired by Detroit. Alan Trammell, who also went into the Hall of Fame this year, will have his No. 3 retired on Aug. 26.“It will be an honor to be here, because I was a coach in Minnesota when Jack helped us win in 1991, and we are great friends,” Gardenhire said. “The fans here adore him, and so do the fans in Minnesota.”UP NEXTThe teams finish their three-game series with Detroit’s Matthew Boyd (6-10, 4.33 ERA) facing Kohl Stewart, who will be making his major league debut for the Twins.
