ARLINGTON, Texas Rookie Taylor Teagarden had his first career grand slam and a career-high five RBIs, Michael Young hit a tiebreaking single and the Texas Rangers beat the Detroit Tigers 11-8 last night.

Detroit carried an 8-7 lead into the eighth, but Texas took the lead against Kyle Farnsworth (2-3) on Teagarden s RBI double and Young s go-ahead single.

Marlon Byrd s two-run triple later in the eighth extended Texas advantage to 11-8, sending Detroit to its fifth straight defeat.

Detroit left-hander Kenny Rogers won t pitch again this season, Tigers manager Jim Leyland said yesterday.

Rogers is a free agent at the end of the season, and the Tigers are unlikely to re-sign the 43-year-old veteran of 20 major league seasons.

We re not going to pitch Kenny, Leyland said. We shut him down for the rest of the season.
