DETROIT (AP) - Doug Fister delivered another strong start in a game Detroit needed and Miguel Cabrera homered and hit a tiebreaking double to lead the Tigers past the Texas Rangers 5-2 Tuesday night in Game 3 of the AL championship series.

Detroit dropped the first two games in Texas before turning to Fister, who won the decisive fifth game of the division series at Yankee Stadium last week. He was sharp again, allowing two runs and seven hits with no walks in 7 1-3 innings.

Jose Valverde, after pitching two innings the day before, worked around a leadoff double in the ninth for his third playoff save.

Game 4 is Wednesday afternoon. Matt Harrison starts for Texas against Rick Porcello - both went 14-9 this season.
