CINCINNATI (AP) -- Prince Fielder homered before driving in the tie-breaking run with a two-out single in the eighth inning to lift the Detroit Tigers to a 3-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday. Brennan Boesch started Detroit's two-out rally against Sean Marshall (1-3) with a double off the wall in center field. After Miguel Cabrera was intentionally walked, Fielder softly lined a single to center and Boesch slid across the plate just ahead of Chris Heisey's strong throw. Brayan Villareal (2-1) pitched a scoreless seventh inning to earn the win before a crowd of 42,443, the largest non-Opening Day, regular-season crowd in the 10-year history of Great American Ball Park. Joaquin Benoit pitched a perfect eighth and Jose Valverde duplicated the effort in the ninth for his 11th save. The Tigers took a 2-0 lead on two two-out solo home runs to right. Ramon Santiago hit his second homer of the season on a 2-1 pitch in the second inning, and Fielder hit his 10th on the first pitch from Arroyo in the fourth. The Reds tied it in the fourth on Heisey's leadoff single, Joey Votto's drive to left that Delmon Young misplayed into a double and Todd Frazier's two-out single to right. Votto extended his hitting streak to a career-high 15 games (29-for-53, .547), surpassing his 14-game streak in 2009. The streak is the longest by a Red since Brandon Phillips' 15-game streak from May 28 through June 12, 2010. Neither starter was involved in the decision. Justin Verlander threw 127 pitches, his second-highest total of the season to the 131 he threw on April 16 in a 3-2, complete-game win at Kansas City. He allowed six hits and two runs with three walks and nine strikeouts in six innings. Bronson Arroyo went seven innings, giving up five hits and two runs with four strikeouts. NOTES: Both teams are 3-2 in interleague play. ... Cincinnati LHP Bill Bray was scheduled to pitch an inning for Single-A Dayton Saturday night and another on Monday during a rehab assignment. Bray has been out since April 24 with a groin injury. ... Detroit activated OF Austin Jackson from the 15-day DL and recalled IF Herman Perez from Single-A Lakeland. The Tigers placed SS Jhonny Peralta on paternity leave and optioned RHP Jose Ortega to Triple-A Toledo. Perez grounded out to third in the eighth inning in his major league debut. ... Reds OF Kristopher Negron drew a seventh-inning walk in his first major league plate appearance.
