Raburn's grand slam secures Tigers' win over Sox, 7-3

Ryan Raburn’s grand slam and Miguel Cabrera’s second homer in as many days led the Tigers to a 7-3 win over the Chicago White Sox.

Raburn was mired in a 6-for-52 slump before his third career grand slam. The 30-year-old has a hit in each of his last five games.

The Tigers captured the last two in the weekend series at Chicago to move within 2 1/2 games of AL Central-leading Cleveland, which lost 2-0 to Texas. They have won 11 of their last 12 games against the White Sox overall.

Brad Penny (5-4) rebounded from a shaky first inning to pick up the victory. He allowed three runs and eight hits, struck out five and walked two in five innings.

Cabrera hit his 13th homer off Will Ohman in the sixth. He also had a tiebreaking two-run homer in the ninth inning of yesterday's 4-2 win.
