Miguel Cabrera and Brandon Inge hit back-to-back homers in the ninth inning and the Detroit Tigers beat the Texas Rangers 8-6 Monday night after blowing a five-run lead.
Cabrera's tiebreaking homer off hard-throwing Neftali Feliz
(2-1) was a 399-foot shot that landed in the Rangers bullpen in
right-center. Inge followed with a blast to left, his second homer
of the game.
Inge's two-run shot in the fifth, his first of the season, put
Detroit up 6-1.
Phil Coke (3-0), the third Tigers pitcher, worked 1 2-3 shutout
innings before Jose Valverde pitched a perfect ninth against the
top of the Texas lineup for his sixth save in seven chances.
