With the game tied 3-3 going into the eighth, the Rangers took the lead on a one-out solo home run by Duran off Tigers reliever Brendan White (1-2). Duran fouled off six two-strike pitches before sending the 12th pitch -- a sweeper on a 3-2 count -- into the left field seats, just inside the foul pole
The Rangers poured it on by scoring four more runs with a two-out rally after the Tigers reliever Anthony Misiewicz took over on the mound. Corey Seager's RBI double was followed by Nathaniel Lowe's RBI single. Garcia capped the frame by ending a nine-pitch at-bat with a two-run blast to straightaway center
The late rally allowed the Rangers to end a three-game losing streak
Texas reliever Josh Sborz (4-2) earned the win after allowing one run over two innings.
Detroit jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the second inning on RBI singles by Miguel Cabrera and Tyler Nevin. Texas rallied for a 3-2 lead with three runs in the sixth, getting a sacrifice fly from Robbie Grossman and RBI hits by pinch hitters Josh Jung and Leody Taveras.
The Rangers' offense finished 3-for-10 with runners in scoring position and struck out only five times. In a series-opening, 7-2 loss to the Tigers on Monday, the Rangers went 0-for-10 with runners in scoring position and struck out 16 times
Texas starter Martin Perez allowed two runs on four hits with two walks and four strikeouts over six innings.
