|Peralta, Raburn HRs Help Tigers Win 10th Straight
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Jhonny Peralta and Ryan Raburn ignited the Detroit Tigers offense with back-to-back homers in the second inning as the Detroit Tigers routed the Chicago White Sox 14-4 for their 10th straight win on Monday night.
It's the Tigers' first 10-game streak since they won 11 in a row in September 1968 before going on to win the World Series that year.
Raburn finished the game with four hits and three RBIs and Peralta added two hits and three RBIs for the Tigers, who reduced their magic number to six in the AL Central.
Detroit starter Rick Porcello (14-8) coasted to an easy victory. He allowed three runs on six hits in 6 2-3 innings. He was tagged for one of Brent Morel's two home runs.
