DETROIT — Miguel Cabrera homered, Doug Fister pitched seven impressive innings and Andy Dirks gave the Tigers a lift for a second straight night in Detroit's 6-2 victory over the Houston Astros today.

Dirks hit a grand slam in Monday's 7-2 win over Houston, and a night later he capped a three-run fifth with a tiebreaking double. The Tigers added two more runs in the sixth, and Cabrera hit his eighth homer of the year in the seventh, a solo shot that gave Detroit a 6-2 lead.

Fister (5-1) allowed two runs and five hits. He struck out seven without a walk.

Lucas Harrell (3-4) allowed five runs and seven hits in five-plus innings. The Astros have lost six straight and 16 of 19.
