A’s beat Tigers despite Cabrera’s 3-homer game

Miguel Cabrera's first three-homer game of his career was not enough to beat the Oakland Athletics. Landon Powell hit his first home run of the season and had a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning that proved to be the game-winning run in Oakland's 5-4 win over the Detroit Tigers on Friday night. Oakland's Ben Sheets gave up three runs in seven innings, his longest start since a five-hit shutout for Milwaukee against San Diego in 2008. Brad Ziegler (2-2) gave up a hit in the eighth inning. Andrew Bailey shut Detroit down after giving up a leadoff homer to Cabrera for his 10th save in 12 chances. Reliever Ryan Perry (1-4) gave up two runs and got just two outs, losing in a second straight game. (Copyright 2010 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
