DETROIT (AP) Alex Rios tripled and drove in three runs, and the Rangers rolled to another Texas-sized rout of Detroit, beating Justin Verlander and the Tigers 12-4 on Sunday.
Texas took three of four in the series, scoring 35 runs in the process. The Tigers have lost six of seven, and even Verlander (5-4) couldn't come close to stopping the slide.
The Detroit right-hander allowed nine runs six earned in 5 1-3 innings in one of the worst starts of his career.
Michael Choice homered for the Rangers in the second, and Texas broke the game open with five runs in the fifth.
Colby Lewis (4-3) allowed two runs and five hits in 5 2-3 innings.
