Cabrera hits 3 HRs, but Tigers fall to Texas
MLB » Tigers’ slugger can’t overcome poor Detroit pitching.


< Previous Page


Washington scrambled to protect a 5-4 lead in the sixth, finally ordering reliever Jason Frasor to walk Cabrera with runners at first and second when he got behind 3-1. Washington brought in left-hander Michael Kirkman to face Fielder, but the lefty slugger ripped his second double to the wall in center field.

Soto started the sixth with a single, and Andrus walked with one out before Murphy pulled a pitch from Ortega to right to put Texas ahead for good.

"Neither team quit fighting," Washington said. "It was a very good ballgame. It didn’t matter what you tried to do. Each team came back, and we got the final blow and were able to sustain."

Holland and Detroit starter Doug Fister both went just 4 2-3 innings, the shortest outing of the year for Holland. The left-hander gave up eight hits and four runs with three walks and six strikeouts. Fister allowed nine hits and five runs.
