Tigers Win, Cubs, White Sox and Whitecaps Lose, Michigan State Tops West Michigan

UNDATED (WHTC) -- The Tigers extended their lead over the Indians beating them 7-2 in a rain-shortened affair from Comerica Park.  The contest was called after seven innings of action.  Victor Martinez went 2-for-3 and knocked in two.   Andy Dirks had two hits and scored twice for Detroit, which has won two straight following a three-game skid.  Detroit third baseman Miguel Cabrera was pulled after two innings because of irritation in his abdominal area.  The Tigers meet the Indians again this evening.  Catch all the action on 1450 WHTC at 6:40 P.M.
