ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Wily Peralta had his longest big league outing since 2016 as the Detroit Tigers opened their series in Texas with a 7-3 win.

Pertalta’s seven scoreless innings came in his fourth start for the Tigers. The 32-year-old right-hander went to spring training with them on a minor league deal. He hasn’t been a full-time starter in the majors since 2017.

Rangers lefty Kolby Allard struck out a career-high nine in 5 1/3 innings.

Two of the five runs against him were unearned.

Zack Short hit a two-run homer and had a sacrifice fly for the Tigers.
