Sports for Monday the 29th

April 29th, 2013 - By Steve James

Miguel Cabrera’s three-run homer in

the seventh inning broke the game open, and the Detroit Tigers

finished off a three-game sweep of the Atlanta Braves with an 8-3

victory Sunday night.

Austin Jackson and Omar Infante also homered for the

Tigers, and Doug Fister (4-0) struck out eight in seven innings on

a rainy night at Comerica Park.

Mike Minor (3-2) allowed a three-run homer to Jackson

in the third, and although the Braves came back to tie it, Cabrera

doubled and scored in the sixth to make it 4-3.

Infante hit a solo shot in the seventh, and Cabrera

added an opposite-field homer off reliever Cory Gearrin.

Atlanta has lost four straight and is 3-8 since a

12-1 start.

Cabrera extended his hitting streak to 12 games.



Rookie Jeff Locke pitched seven

innings of three-hit ball and Russell Martin had two of

Pittsburgh’s four home runs in a 9-0 victory over the St. Louis

Cardinals on Sunday that gave the Pirates a series win and the NL

Central lead.

Jones had three hits and John McDonald added an RBI

double for Pittsburgh, which ended rookie Shelby Miller’s streak of

14 scoreless innings at home to start the season. The Pirates have

won nine of 12 overall.

Locke (3-1) has worked 13 scoreless innings while

allowing five hits his last two starts. The Cardinals got just

three singles and advanced two runners into scoring position

against the 25-year-old left-hander.

Miller (3-2) struggled to put away hitters and was

taken out after 113 pitches and giving up two homers in 5 2-3
