Tigers 11, Rangers 3
Armando Galarraga earned the win, his 12th of the season. (Tony Gutierrez/AP)
Matt Joyce, a revelation for the Tigers this season, hit two homers, including a three-run shot that began Detroit's nine-run seventh inning. Armando Galarraga, acquired from Texas in the offseason, gave up three runs -- all via one six-inning homer -- to earn the victory.
