Tigers Rally From 7 Down, Beat White Sox 9-8
DETROIT (AP) -- Miguel Cabrera hit a game-ending solo homer in the ninth inning, capping a stirring Detroit rally and lifting the Tigers to a 9-8 win over the Chicago White Sox on Saturday.

Detroit trailed 8-1 in the fifth and 8-6 heading into the ninth, but Ryan Raburn tied it with a two-run shot off Sergio Santos, and Cabrera won it one out later with his 25th homer of the year. Santos (3-4) hadn't allowed a run in his previous 30 road appearances, dating to last season.

Luis Marte (1-0) earned his first big league win with a perfect top of the ninth.

Detroit leads third-place Chicago by 7{ games in the AL Central.

The game was delayed 36 minutes in the eighth by rain.
