On paper, this is a huge mismatch in favor of Detroit.

The Tigers scratched out a run in the first inning.

The Rangers could not even get a base runner in the first three innings.

After three: Detroit 1 Texas 0.

In the top of the fourth, Jeff Burroughs tied the game with an RBI double.

In the bottom of the fourth, the Tigers loaded the bases with nobody out and plated two of them.

In the bottom of the fifth, Broberg got his 30th strikeout of the season, getting Norm Cash to whiff at a sinker.

After six: Detroit 3 Texas 1.

In the top of the seventh, Frank Howard tied the game with his second home run of the season, a two-run shot. But, in the bottom of the seventh, Al Kaline hit a solo home run to give Detroit the lead back. Norm Cash added a two-run shot, his seventh home run of the season.

Final score: Detroit 6 Texas 3.
