OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Pinch-runner Rajai Davis scored on Austin Jackson's fielder's choice groundout in the eighth inning and the Detroit Tigers beat the Oakland Athletics 6-5 Tuesday night to end a three-game losing streak.

J.D. Martinez drew a one-out walk off Oakland reliever Fernando Abad (0-2). Davis was brought in to run and the speedy outfielder took second on a passed ball. He then stole third when A's catcher Derek Norris was throwing the ball back to Abad.

After Luke Gregerson replaced Abad, Jackson hit a sharp grounder to Oakland shortstop Jed Lowrie, but the A's were unable to turn the double play and Davis raced home with the go-ahead run.

Miguel Cabrera and Torii Hunter homered for the Al Central-leading Tigers.

John Jaso homered for the A's.

Al Albuquerque (2-1) pitched one inning for the win and Joe Nathan worked the ninth for his 12th save in 15 tries.
