OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Jason Giambi and Jack Cust broke out of
funks with two-run homers, Dallas Braden ended a four-start winless
stretch and the Oakland Athletics beat the Detroit Tigers 5-1
Wednesday.

Giambi's drive in the sixth off Justin Verlander (8-4) was home run No. 407, tying him with Duke Snider for 43rd place. Giambi, who
has been dealing with sore legs and entered the game with an American League-low .197 batting average, was in a 2-for-28 stretch
before the homer after striking out in his first two at-bats.
