DETROIT (AP) — Joey Wendle tripled and homered, 30-year-old Dietrich Enns won for the first time in the major leagues and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Detroit Tigers 7-2 on Saturday.

Kevin Kiermaier doubled and tripled to help the Rays end a two-game losing streak. Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera picked up his 2,974th career hit with an RBI single in the fourth.

Enns struck out six in four hitless innings of relief, nine years after being drafted by the New York Yankees out of Central Michigan University.
