ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Detroit Tigers didn’t let Texas starter Kyle Gibson go to his first All-Star game without a loss.

Miguel Cabrera had a go-ahead RBI single as a pinch-hitter right after Gibson left with the bases loaded and the Tigers went on to beat the Rangers 5-3.

Joey Gallo homered twice to become the first Rangers player ever with 10 homers in a 10-game stretch. The All-Star right fielder has 23 homers overall.

He drove in another run when he drew his AL-best 67th walk with the bases loaded.
