DETROIT (AP) - Miguel Cabrera hit a grand slam and matched a career high with six RBIs, leading Armando Galarraga and the Detroit Tigers over the Texas Rangers 15-2 Friday in their home opener.
The Tigers gave 44,588 fans plenty of reasons to cheer after bolstering low expectations by losing three of their first four games in Toronto.
The Rangers, meanwhile, found out their fast start didn't matter much at Comerica Park. Texas started out 3-0 for the first time since 1996 and led the majors in runs before the Tigers roughed up Kris Benson.
