Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - Magglio Ordonez delivered a two-out, two-run single in the seventh and Ryan Raburn made a game-saving catch a half-inning later, as the Detroit Tigers downed the San Francisco Giants, 6-3, in comeback fashion to avoid a sweep in the finale of a three-game interleague set.
With runners on first and second and two down in the eighth, Aaron Rowand drove a 3-2 slider into the gap in left-center. Raburn gave chase and threw himself in the direction of the sinking ball. Horizontal and fully extended, he made the catch inches from the ground to preserve the lead in thrilling fashion.
Rick Porcello (7-6) lasted seven innings, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out six to earn the win.
Jeremy Affeldt (1-2) took the loss for the Giants, who fell for just the third time in 12 games.
