McCann’s grand slam leads Tigers to sweep of Astros

By DAVE HOGG=

DETROIT (AP) _ James McCann capped a six-run first inning with his first career grand slam as the Detroit Tigers completed a three-game sweep of the Houston Astros with an 11-0 rout Sunday.

Miguel Cabrera homered twice for the Tigers.

The Tigers, who began the day one game behind Boston for the second American League wild-card spot, have now won six straight _ including a sweep at Fenway Park. The win extended Detroit’s lead over Houston to 1 1/2 games.

Mike Pelfrey (4-9) got the win, pitching five shutout innings and allowed four hits and a walk, striking out four. He has now allowed one or fewer runs in five of his last eight starts.

Dallas Keuchel (6-11) took the loss, allowing seven runs and seven hits in five innings, walking three and striking out four.
