Sizemore, Boesch record 1st career homers in Tigers' victory


DETROIT — Scott Sizemore and Brennan Boesch hit their first career homers in an eight-run fourth inning, and the Detroit Tigers went on to beat the Los Angeles Angels 10-6 Friday night.

Sizemore's homer, which came one pitch after Gerald Laird's first of the season, tied the game at four. Miguel Cabrera added an RBI single later in the inning before Boesch's grand slam to center field.

A third Tigers rookie, Austin Jackson, went 5 for 5, making him the first Tigers rookie with five hits in a game since the player he replaced, Curtis Granderson, did it on Sept. 18, 2005.

Rick Porcello (2-2) won despite allowing five runs on eight hits in 5 1-3 innings. Joel Pineiro (2-3) gave up a career-high 10 runs in 3 1-3 innings.
