DETROIT (AP) - Miguel Cabrera homered for his first of four hits and four RBIs, Robbie Ray gave up one run in his debut and the Detroit Tigers routed the Houston Astros 11-4 Tuesday night for their season-high seventh straight win.
Houston, which has the worst record in the majors, lost its fourth in a row and sixth in seven games.
Ray (1-0) gave up one run, five hits, a walk and struck out five in 5 1-3 innings in his first game in the majors.
Brett Oberholtzer (0-6) allowed four runs on nine hits, two sacrifice flies and a walk over six innings.
INDIANS 4, TWINS 2
CLEVELAND (AP) - Josh Tomlin earned his first major league win since 2012, pitching into the seventh inning and leading the Indians past the Twins.
Tomlin (1-0) allowed one run and four hits in 6 2-3 innings. He was called up from Triple-A Columbus before the game after missing most of last year while recovering from Tommy John surgery.
Tomlin struck out four, walked one and won for the first time since July 5, 2012, with the Indians. He had his elbow operation the next month.
The right-hander took a two-hit shutout into the seventh before Chris Colabello homered.
Samuel Deduno (0-2) allowed four runs in five innings in his first start of the season.
RED SOX 4, REDS 3, 12 INNINGS
BOSTON (AP) - Grady Sizemore lined one off the Green Monster to score the game-winning run in the 12th inning and the Red Sox beat the Reds.
It was the longest game between the two teams since the Red Sox won Game 6 of the 1975 World Series on Carlton Fisk's 12th-inning homer.
Craig Breslow (1-0) pitched one inning of scoreless relief for the win.
Logan Ondrusek (0-2) took the loss. He pitched a scoreless 11th but gave up singles to David Ortiz and Mike Napoli before Sizemore hit a liner off the left field Wall.
