DETROIT — Miguel Cabrera and Carlos Guillen hit two-run homers in Detroit's six-run fifth inning. The Tigers trailed 3-1 before Magglio Ordonez brought them to within a run with a sacrifice fly, then Cabrera's homer put them ahead to stay. Detroit's Victor Martinez scored the game's first run by sidestepping catcher Kurt Suzuki's tag then reaching back to touch the plate.
