• Astros edge Cabrera, Tigers to avoid sweep

    Summary of 6 articles · Updated May 15, 2013
    Barnes caught Cabrera's drive against the wall for the final out, and the Houston Astros avoided a season sweep against the Detroit Tigers with a 7-5 victory Wednesday. The Astros ended a six-game losing streak, avoided a three-game sweep by Detroit and downed the Tigers for the first time this season in seven contests. The Astros’ heart and fight broke through again Wednesday at Comerica Park during a 7-5 victory over the Tigers that came within about 5 feet of turning into a Miguel Cabrera walk-off grand slam. The win prevented a Detroit three-game sweep, ended the Astros’ six-game losing streak and marked the first time in seven contests this season that the AL’s newest member managed to knock off the 2012 pennant winner. Scherzer looks to help Detroit finish 7-0 against Houston while staying unbeaten himself Wednesday as he takes on an Astros team mired in its third six-game losing streak of the season. The Triple Crown winner came a few feet from a grand slam, but Barnes who entered as a pinch-runner in the top of the inning and stayed in to play center had enough room to run it down and make the catch while jumping back a bit into the out-of-town scoreboard.
