DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers showed a lot of their good side Saturday. Willie McCovey Jersey
. It was the bullpen that kept it from being a showcase night. The Tigers got three home runs from the middle of their batting order -- Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez and J.D. Martinez -- and an outstanding starting pitching performance from Rick Porcello, who allowed two runs and five hits in eight innings while striking out a season-high 10. But their bullpen, which has struggled this season, allowed three runs in the ninth inning on three hits and two walks and forced manager Brad Ausmus to use two relievers and to have two more throwing in the bullpen." "We were scrambling a little bit in the last inning," Ausmus said. "You dont want to have to get that many arms up when youre ahead by that much." But there was plenty of cushion Alex Avila had three hits and drove in two runs and Ian Kinsler had three hits and an RBI for the Tigers, who scored in all eight innings they batted, had 16 hits and got at least a hit from each batter in the starting lineup. "It was perfect the way everyone hit. Everyone contributed in some fashion," Ausmus said. "Nice to see us get some separation. Our offence has been kind of sluggish the last week-to-10 days." Porcello (13-5) tied teammate Max Scherzer for the American League lead in victories. "Just had a good feel for my off-speed stuff and had a good changeup and cutter," said Porcello, who laboured through the first two innings before finding his groove in the third. "He had some really good movement and kept pitches in the strike zone," Colorados Charlie Blackmon said. "He was able to mix them up pretty well." Earlier in the day, newly acquired David Price joined his new teammates and a starting rotation that also includes Justin Verlander and Anibal Sanchez. "He basically takes the ball and goes the distance," Porcello said of Price. ". Going to be a lot of fun playing with him." Colorado starter Tyler Matzek (2-6) allowed eight runs and 10 hits in 4-plus innings. RARE FEAT It was the first time Detroit scored in all eight innings of a nine-inning home win since 1912. TAPE MEASURE BLAST Cabrera broke a 2-2 tie with two outs in the third with his 17th home run, a tape measure solo shot, that put Detroit up for good. The drive to centre field was estimated by ESPN Stats & Info at 445 feet. "You cant help to be excited when you see that," Porcello said. "I was a fan there. Pretty fun." ROCKIES MOVE Colorado selected the contract of outfielder Jason Pridie from Triple-A Colorado Springs and left-handed pitcher Pedro Hernahdez was designated for assignment. UP NEXT: Sanchez (7-5, 3.57) goes against Jorge De La Rosa (11-6, 4.20) of the Rockies in Sundays finale of the three-game series. It will be the 19th consecutive start by a left-hander for Colorado. The major league record (since 1914) is 20 straight by the 1982 Kansas City Royals. Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau is hitting .316 (6 for 19) against Sanchez with two RBIs. Padres Jerseys China

The three-time Grand Slam champion got the call when she was in a hospital about to give birth to her fourth child in early January. With daughter Haven nearly 2 months old now, Davenport can start to reflect on the honour. "Growing up playing tennis, getting to the Hall of Fame was never even in my dreams," she said on a conference call on Monday after the class of 2014 was announced. "It seemed a little bit too big for me." The 37-year-old Davenport is thrilled that at the enshrinement ceremony in Newport, Rhode Island, on July 12, her 6-year-old son Jagger will get to learn about the sports history. He plays tennis, too. Davenport will be joined by five-time Paralympic medallist Chantal Vandierendonck of the Netherlands in the recent player category, coach Nick Bollettieri, executive Jane Brown Grimes and British broadcaster John Barrett in the contributor category. Davenport won the 1998 U.S. Open, 1999 Wimbledon, 2000 Australian Open and 1996 Olympic gold medal to go with three major doubles titles. The American held the world No. 1 ranking for 98 weeks in her career. That first major championship, at her home Grand Slam event, always will be special. "For any player who has ever played with insecurity, not sure where theyre supposed to be, how good they are, that really was a huge moment, noot just in my career but for me personally," Davenport said.

In 1978, he founded the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy, the first full-time tennis boarding school. At a news conference in New York, Bollettieri acknowledged this was one of the few times in his life he felt at a loss for words. "To be standing aside some of the players Ive helped achieve what they are," he said, "is a dream that even Nick Bollettieri cant comprehend." Vandierendonck was a top Dutch player before she was injured in a car accident in 1983 and went on to become a pioneer in wheelchair tennis. Brown Grimes is a former managing director of the Womens Professional Tennis Council, now known as the WTA Tour Board; president of the U.S. Tennis Association; and president of the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Barrett was the "Voice of Wimbledon" on the BBC from 1971-06. His wife, former top-ranked player Angela Mortimer Barrett, was inducted into the Hall in 1993. Agassi and Steffi Graf are the only other married couple in the Hall. Davenport wishes shed done a better job during her career of following Billie Jean Kings advice to "enjoy the process." But shes proud that she believes she always played the sport for the right reasons. "Youre not great at something unless you love it," she said. ' ' '
