DETROIT (AP) -- Torii Hunter hit a three-run homer with two outs in the ninth inning, lifting Detroit over the Oakland Athletics 7-6 Thursday and saving the Tigers after Max Scherzer was denied his 20th win and Miguel Cabrera limped off with an injury. The Tigers scored four times in the ninth off Grant Balfour (0-3). A two-out walk set up Victor Martinez' RBI single, then Hunter homered as the Tigers avoided a sweep. Scherzer gave up six runs in five innings. The no-decision left him with a 19-1 record. Cabrera hurt his abdomen making an awkward slide trying to stretch a single into a double. He was listed as day to day with discomfort. The reigning Triple Crown winner has been hobbled this month with a strain in his groin, abdominal and hip area. He's also had a banged-up left leg.

Game 2013.134: A’s at Tigers

77-56, 1st place, 5.5 games ahead of the Indians. So this is what it’s like to be an Astros fan. Oh, right. The above. Strike that remark. But losing 14-4 will correct your Pythagorean record in a hurry. The pitching has gotten a bit soggy lately, eh? The A’s are also swinging the bats very, very well. The Tigers have run into them at the wrong time. Seems to happen with some...

The A’s are really on top of things

From John Hickey’s game recap of Wednesday’s curbstomping of the Tigers: [Dan] Straily, who had been consistently betrayed by the Oakland offense since the All-Star break, had so many runs scored that he almost blinked and missed some. “This is going to sound strange, but when I gave up that (third-inning) homer to Torii Hunter, I thought it was a 1-0 game,” Straily said...

Brandon Moss, Relentless A’s Offense Pummel Tigers 14-4

Oakland A's unleash 21-hit attack and wallop Tigers 14-4
