Tigers On The Board Top Texas In ALCS Game Three
Victor Martinez, Jhonny Peralta and Miguel Cabrera each popped solo home runs to back seven-and-a-third stellar innings of duty from Doug Fister as the Tigers topped Texas, 5-2, in Game Three of the American League Championship Series on Tuesday night.
Fister struck out three and gave up two runs on seven hits to register the victory. Jose Valverde worked past a leadoff double in the ninth to nail down the save. Cabrera added an RBI double and Austin Jackson also drove in a run for Detroit, which still trails two-games-to-one in the best-of-seven set. Josh Hamilton and Ian Kinsler each plated a run for Texas. Colby Lewis was tagged with the loss after allowing four runs through five-and-two-third frames. The two teams are right back on the diamond for Game Four this afternoon at Comerica Park. Matt Harrison is slated to be on the bump for the Rangers, while Rick Porcello will get the nod for the Tigers
