Six Straight: Tigers Beat Nats 8-3

Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-5 and knocked in three, as the Detroit Tigers completed a three-game interleague series sweep of the Washington Nationals with an 8-3 victory at Comerica Park.

Alex Avila added a pair of hits and two RBI, while Ramon Santiago turned in a 4-for-4 effort with three runs scored and an RBI for Detroit, which has won six straight. The Tigers also earned a three-game sweep of the Nationals in Washington back in 2007.

Jeremy Bonderman (3-4) snapped a four-start winless streak after tossing seven effective innings. The right-hander allowed two runs on five hits, did not walk a batter and struck out seven.
