      Robbie Ray notches first Big League win

      Miguel Cabrera homered for his first of four hits and four RBIs, Robbie Ray gave up one run in his debut and the Detroit Tigers routed the Houston Astros 11-4 Tuesday night for their season-high seventh straight win.

      Houston, which has the worst record in the majors, lost its fourth in a row and sixth in seven games.

      Cabrera cleared the fences for the third time this year in the first inning with a solo homer. The Tigers scored two runs in the third inning and another one in the fourth.

      That was plenty of support for the 22-year-old Ray, who was acquired in the offseason trade that sent Doug Fister to Washington.

      Ray (1-0) gave up one run, five hits, a walk and struck out five in 5 1-3 innings in his first game in the majors.

      Brett Oberholtzer (0-6) allowed four runs on nine hits, two sacrifice flies and a walk over six innings.
