Rangers rout Tigers, 11-4

David Murphy had a homer upheld on replay to help the Texas Rangers win their sixth straight game with an 11-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night.
Murphy led off the fourth against Jeremy Bonderman with his 10th
homer, but had to wait a few minutes before it was official. His
high drive to right field sailed near the foul pole, with the ball
finally glancing off the facing of the second deck.
Tigers manager Jim Leyland argued that the ball was foul, but he
was overruled after the umpires went to video review.
Murphy had three hits and extended his career-best hitting
streak to 12 games.
Texas maintained momentum from a three-game weekend sweep of the
New York Yankees, increasing its lead in the AL West to nine games
over second-place Oakland.
