Cabrera-less Tigers power past White Sox 6-2

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Prince Fielder, Austin Jackson and Torii Hunter homered, and Anibal Sanchez pitched six scoreless innings to help the Detroit Tigers overcome Miguel Cabrera's absence in a 6-2 win over the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday night.

Cabrera, the reigning AL MVP and baseball's first Triple Crown winner in 45 years last season, left Monday's game in the bottom of the fifth inning with a left hip flexor injury. He hasn't played since and might sit out Thursday, too, when the Tigers go for a 4-game sweep.

Detroit has won four straight and 13 of 21.

Sanchez (8-7) earned his first win since July 6, allowing six hits and striking out five. The right-hander had only allowed five earned runs in his previous two starts, both losses.

John Danks (2-8) lost his second straight start and is winless since July 2.
