Tigers avoid sweep, beat Rangers 4-1

Max Scherzer threw seven scoreless innings and Gerald Laird hit a two-run homer, helping the Detroit Tigers beat the Texas Rangers 4-1 on Wednesday to snap a seven-game skid.
Magglio Ordonez and Miguel Cabrera drove in runs in the seventh
to give Detroit a four-run lead.
Scherzer (7-7) gave up four hits and three walks, throwing a
career-high 123 pitches. Phil Coke pitched a perfect eighth and
Jose Valverde had a shaky ninth.
Valverde walked Ian Kinsler, hit Vladimir Guerrero and allowed
both to advance on a wild pitch. Josh Hamilton's groundout pulled
Texas within three. Nelson Cruz struck out and David Murphy
grounded out to end the threat.
Colby Lewis (9-6) allowed four runs and nine hits over seven
innings for the AL West-leading Rangers.

    Darn. They still did great, though. Hope the ruckus over the sale of the Rangers isn't affecting the players, and I sure hope Nolan Ryan becomes part owner rather than Mark Cuban, who should stick with basketball.
