Miguel Cabrera's 9th Inning Single Gives Tigers Walk-Off Win Vs. Rangers

Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - Miguel Cabrera's single with two outs and the bases loaded in the ninth inning lifted Detroit to 5-4 win over Texas in the second of a three-game set at Comerica Park.

Cabrera also doubled and Ryan Raburn went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a walk for Detroit, which snapped a three-game slide. Ramon Santiago, Victor Martinez and Brennan Boesch each drove in a run in the victory.

Brad Penny started and allowed three runs on seven hits, one walk and struck out two in 6 2/3 innings, but did not factor in the decision.

Michael Young went 3-for-3 with an RBI and score twice for the Rangers, who had won three in a row and nine of 10 to start the season.

Josh Hamilton, serving as the designated hitter, drove in a run with a triple, but left after only one at-bat with a strained right shoulder after trying to score on an infield pop out in foul territory in the first inning. He was apparently hurt when he tried to elude a tag on a head-first slide at the plate.

C.J. Wilson got the starting nod for Texas and pitched to a no-decision. The left-hander yielded four runs on seven hits and three walks in 6 2/3 frames. He finished with four strikeouts.
