HAMILTON HITS 32 HR AND DARVISH BEATS TIGERS
Tue, 14 Aug 2012 11:45 PM EDT

With Josh Hamilton and Yu Darvish regaining their form from the 1st half of the season, the Rangers are beginning to pull away in the AL West.

Hamilton hit his 32nd homer and drove in 3 runs, Darvish struck out 8 and the Rangers beat the Tigers 8-3.

The Rangers are 10-3 since having their division lead cut down to 3 games on July 31. After Oakland Athletics lost Sun., the Rangers now top the American League West by 6 1/2 games.

Hamilton is a big reason for Texas’ surge. He was mired down in a lengthy slump when manager Ron Washington gave him a psychological day off on July 28. The slugger was then briefly collapsed to the 5th spot in the lineup for the first time in 2 years.

The 2010 American League MVP has responded since that time, hitting 3 home runs with 15 RBIs in 11 games. The Texas Rangers have gone 8-3 in that span. Odds

Hamilton had a 2-run drive in the 1st inning, taking the major league lead and matching his career high. He added an RBI single to give him 99 RBIs, which is also tops in baseball.

Darvish (12-8) allowed 6 hits and walked 5 to snap an individual 2-game losing streak and help the Rangers take 2 of 3 from the Tigers.

After starting the season 10-4, Darvish went 1-4 with a 7.04 ERA in 6 starts before Sunday.

Ian Kinsler drove in 2 runs and Elvis Andrus scored 3 times. The Rangers, who knocked off the Tigers in last season’s American League championship series, won the season series 7-3.

Miguel Cabrera had a 2-run double as the Detroit Tigers slipped 2 games behind the White Sox in the American League Central.

Rick Porcello (9-7) gave up 9 hits and 6 runs. The right-hander is 2-3 lifetime against the Rangers with a 7.83 ERA in 5 starts.

The Tigers committed 3 errors and threw 3 wild pitches. Detroit’s offense was held to 11 hits in losing the last 2 games.

Darvish walked Andy Dirks and Cabrera with 2 outs in the 7th. Robbie Ross relieved and got Prince Fielder to pop out.

The Texas Rangers next travel to New York for a 4-game set against the Yankees in a matchup of the 2 top teams in the American League.

Hamilton’s 419-foot long ball – his 3rd homer in 4 games – simply cleared the fence in center and gave Texas a 2-0 lead. He equaled his career high in home runs, a mark he established in 2008 and 2010.

Texas scored 3 runs in the 3rd with the help of 2 Detroit errors.

Kinsler’s RBI double made it 3-0, and he returned home when Porcello made an errant throw toward 3rd after fielding a hopper.

Hamilton capped the inning with an RBI single to right that Brennan Boesch booted, allowing Hamilton to go to 3rd.

Texas increased its advantage to 6-0 on Kinsler’s sacrifice fly in the 4th before the Tigers touched up Darvish.

Omar Infante’s RBI double in the 5th snapped a 12-inning scoreless slump, and Cabrera’s 2-run double off Darvish gave him 98 RBIs and brought the Tigers to 6-3.

The Texas Rangers scored twice in the 7th thanks to 3 wild pitches and an error.
