DETROIT -- Miguel Cabrera left the batters box with a bit of a hop in his step while his drive to right field sailed over the wall. Nike Roshe Run Dame Sort . "A long time, I had not hit a home run," the slugger said. Cabreras solo shot in the sixth inning was his 44th of the year, but his first since Aug. 26. It was perhaps the most encouraging highlight for Detroit in a 6-2 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday night that kept the Tigers six games ahead of second-place Cleveland in the AL Central. Detroits magic number to eliminate the Indians is six. Ahead 3-2, the Tigers escaped a bases-loaded jam in the eighth while playing without closer Joaquin Benoit and left-handed reliever Drew Smyly. They were both given the night off. "We need everybody here on our ballclub," Cabrera said. "I think everybody here stepped up tonight and did their jobs. Its what we need to still win our games, what we need if we go to the playoffs." Anibal Sanchez struck out 10 in 6 1-3 innings, but the Mariners tied it at 2 against him in the seventh, forcing Detroits relievers into action. Al Alburquerque (3-3) got out of the seventh, and Phil Coke and Jose Alvarez made it through a dodgy eighth. Alvarez got two outs in the ninth, and Jose Veras finished. Yoervis Medina (4-6) took the loss. The Mariners have dropped eight of nine. Cabrera has been bothered by a number of injuries that have affected his legs and midsection, so his opposite-field solo shot was a welcome sight for the Comerica Park crowd. It gave Detroit a 2-1 lead, but pinch-hitter Kendrys Morales tied it with an RBI double in the seventh. Alex Avila led off the bottom of the seventh with his first triple of the year, and after Jose Iglesias was hit by a pitch, Avila was caught in a rundown between third and home on Jacksons grounder. Avila stayed in the rundown long enough to enable Iglesias to go all the way from first to third, and Torii Hunters sacrifice fly put the Tigers ahead 3-2. They werent safe yet, though. With Benoit and Smyly unavailable, Coke walked two hitters, sandwiched around an error by Iglesias at shortstop. Alvarez came on with the bases loaded and got Mike Zunino to hit into a double play that kept the Tigers ahead. "Obviously, I was trying for a groundball," Alvarez said. "That was a good AB for the hitter -- a couple good pitches foul. ... If we dont make the play in that situation, it costs us the game maybe, but we make it and we take the win." Zunino drew two walks but couldnt come through in what was probably the biggest at-bat of the game. "I was just trying to battle and get the ball to the outfield," he said. "Im sure I saw every pitch he had, and I was keeping myself alive, but I just didnt do what I needed to do. A groundball was the worst thing in the world right there, and they turned two on me." Omar Infante added an RBI single in the bottom of the inning, and Austin Jacksons two-run single made it 6-2. Sanchez allowed six hits and two walks in 6 1-3 innings. His American League-leading ERA is now at 2.51. He threw 125 pitches. "Im not tired, more frustrated that I got the lead twice today and I dont keep the score," Sanchez said. "But at the end we win. Thats the most important thing." Don Kellys fourth-inning homer put Detroit ahead 1-0, but Raul Ibanez tied it in the sixth with his 28th homer of the year. Seattle starter Brandon Maurer pitched five-plus innings, allowing two runs and five hits. He walked two and struck out six. "I thought Maurer was much better today than hes been," Mariners manager Eric Wedge said. "Hes struggled lately, and he was pitching at this time of year against that team, but he didnt let any of that get to him. He kept his emotions in check and did a very nice job." NOTES: Detroit manager Jim Leyland said DH Victor Martinez will catch Thursdays game. ... Detroit RHP Justin Verlander (13-11) faces Seattle RHP Hisashi Iwakuma (12-6) on Wednesday night.

Nike Air Max 2016 Kvinder . - Myles Bell scored twice, including 2:24 into overtime, as the Kelowna Rockets came from behind to defeat the host Brandon Wheat Kings 6-5 on Friday in Western Hockey League play.EASTBOURNE, England -- Angelique Kerber of Germany reached her second Aegon International final with a 3-6, 7-6 (3), 6-3 victory over 2009 champion Caroline Wozniacki on Friday. She will play Madison Keys for her fourth career title, after the American teenager defeated Britains Heather Watson 6-3, 6-1. Kerber, who finished as runner-up to Tamira Paszek in 2012, challenged her Danish opponent throughout the 2-hour, 39-minute semifinal of fiercely contested baseline rallies. "We had such tough battles in the past and today," Kerber said. "You know actually before you walk on court it will be a tough one. "You will run a lot, so, you know, you just prepare your mind to be there for every single point, and just try to play your best tennis against her." Wozniacki, at first, held the upper hand by being the more aggressive player as she frequently came to the net, but after holding off three break points as she served out the opening set her challenge began to lose its iintensity. Nike Air Max Thea Sort Tilbud. Kerber held a set point at 5-4 before winning the last six points of the tiebreaker to claim the second set, and in the third she finished strongly by sweeping five of the last six games. "I probably should have closed it in two sets, being up a break and then being up in the tiebreaker," Wozniacki said. "But, you know, it happens. Im looking forward to Wimbledon now." She was also in a good frame of mind after her engagement to golfer Rory McIlroy was ended. "Life throws you things that you didnt expect, but you just have to embrace it and move forward," she said. "It makes you stronger. Im in a good place right now." Keys, the youngest player in the top 50 at 19, will be contesting her first WTA final after previously being stopped in the semis three times. She fought off three break points before taking the opening set with a single break, and a further break for 2-1 set her firmly on the way to victory.
