Rangers Vs. Tigers Final Score: Josh Hamilton Homers, Texas Wins 8-3

Josh Hamilton hit his 32nd home run of the season in the first inning as the Texas Rangers went on to defeat the Detroit Tigers 8-3 on Sunday. The Rangers take two of the three games in the series as Yu Darvish wins his 12th game of the season.

Darvish wasn't exactly sharp allowing eight hits and three runs in six innings of work. Darvish's eight strikeouts are nice but the five walks are ugly but they didn't come back to hurt him on Sunday.

Hamilton finished 2 for 3 with a homer and three RBIs in the game while Ian Kinsler drove in two runs for the Rangers. Miguel Cabrera finished 2 for 3 for the Tigers and drove in two runs.

Rick Porcello takes the loss after allowing nine hits and six runs in six innings of work.
