DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers showed a lot of their good side Saturday. Adam Morgan Jersey . It was the bullpen that kept it from being a showcase night. The Tigers got three home runs from the middle of their batting order -- Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez and J.D. Martinez -- and an outstanding starting pitching performance from Rick Porcello, who allowed two runs and five hits in eight innings while striking out a season-high 10. But their bullpen, which has struggled this season, allowed three runs in the ninth inning on three hits and two walks and forced manager Brad Ausmus to use two relievers and to have two more throwing in the bullpen." "We were scrambling a little bit in the last inning," Ausmus said. "You dont want to have to get that many arms up when youre ahead by that much." But there was plenty of cushion Alex Avila had three hits and drove in two runs and Ian Kinsler had three hits and an RBI for the Tigers, who scored in all eight innings they batted, had 16 hits and got at least a hit from each batter in the starting lineup. "It was perfect the way everyone hit. Everyone contributed in some fashion," Ausmus said. "Nice to see us get some separation. Our offence has been kind of sluggish the last week-to-10 days." Porcello (13-5) tied teammate Max Scherzer for the American League lead in victories. "Just had a good feel for my off-speed stuff and had a good changeup and cutter," said Porcello, who laboured through the first two innings before finding his groove in the third. "He had some really good movement and kept pitches in the strike zone," Colorados Charlie Blackmon said. "He was able to mix them up pretty well." Earlier in the day, newly acquired David Price joined his new teammates and a starting rotation that also includes Justin Verlander and Anibal Sanchez. "He basically takes the ball and goes the distance," Porcello said of Price. ". Going to be a lot of fun playing with him." Colorado starter Tyler Matzek (2-6) allowed eight runs and 10 hits in 4-plus innings. RARE FEAT It was the first time Detroit scored in all eight innings of a nine-inning home win since 1912. TAPE MEASURE BLAST Cabrera broke a 2-2 tie with two outs in the third with his 17th home run, a tape measure solo shot, that put Detroit up for good. The drive to centre field was estimated by ESPN Stats & Info at 445 feet. "You cant help to be excited when you see that," Porcello said. "I was a fan there. Pretty fun." ROCKIES MOVE Colorado selected the contract of outfielder Jason Pridie from Triple-A Colorado Springs and left-handed pitcher Pedro Hernahdez was designated for assignment. UP NEXT: Sanchez (7-5, 3.57) goes against Jorge De La Rosa (11-6, 4.20) of the Rockies in Sundays finale of the three-game series. It will be the 19th consecutive start by a left-hander for Colorado. The major league record (since 1914) is 20 straight by the 1982 Kansas City Royals. Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau is hitting .316 (6 for 19) against Sanchez with two RBIs. Steve Carlton Jersey . George Hill had 13 points and seven rebounds for the Pacers, who stayed atop the overall NBA standings despite losing twice on their West Coast trip. Los Angeles kept it close into the second half before the Pacers finished an easy win over the injury-riddled Lakers, who have lost five straight. Pedro Martinez Jersey . - Even with a new coach, the Denver Nuggets still love to push the basketball.TORONTO -- Toronto Argonauts owner David Braley has people kicking the tires of the franchise he hopes to sell, but his top priority is securing the team a lease at BMO Field. The Argos and B.C. Lions -- the CFL teams Braley owns -- have been for sale since last September when the 73-year-old Hamilton businessman stated hed sell one or both by his 75th birthday. Braley said Tuesday he has several potential suitors for the Lions but refuted a Toronto Star headline stating he had "multiple offers" for the Argos. "I dont have multiple offers," Braley said in a telephone interview. "Ive had multiple people approach me, thats the truth. Its now three but thats beside the point." Braley wouldnt say if Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment -- which owns the NHLs Maple Leafs, NBAs Raptors and Toronto FC of Major League Soccer and also operates BMO Field -- was one of the parties interested in the Argos. But Braley was adamant his top priority is reaching a lease agreement with MLSE for BMO Field. "Thats the first step in the process," Braley said. "I would say thats not out of the question . . . I believe theres a very good chance well get this thing sorted out. "Then the second step is are they (MLSE) interested in buying it? Thats a separate issue." Time is of the essence. The Argos lease at Rogers Centre expires after the 2017 season. MLSE has proposed a $120-million renovation of BMO Field, with the first phase expected to be completed in time for next summers Pan-Am Games. The opening part of the project went ahead without $10-million funding commitments from both the provincial or federal governments, resulting in the third and final phase -- which included the installation of a playing surface capable of accommodating a CFL franchise -- being placed on the back burner. CFL commissioner Mark Cohon expects the Argos and MLSE to resume talks in the coming weeks. Should either the provincial or federal governments not commit financially to the BMO Field expansion, Cohon said the league will look at how it could raise the $10-$20 million needed to ensure the third phase went ahead. "I think whats most important is we come up with the right lease agreement that works for MLSE as the operator of BMO Field but also works for the future of the Argos and can make them a profitable franchise," Cohon said. "Then the next phase after that would be the discussion around other incremental areas we can support BMO Field. "The important thing is for our fans and partnerrs to know theres a solution at hand and were trying to work through that. Gary Varsho Jersey. If we can get them in there it makes the team a lot more attractive for a future purchaser. Thats what were focused on." A move to BMO Field would seem the most practical and logical for the Argos. The facility is outdoors, permanent seating would be increased to 30,000 -- and could expand to 40,000 for special events -- with parking and transit nearby. It would provide a more fan-friendly and intimate atmosphere than the cavernous Rogers Centre, which can hold over 50,000 spectators for football. More than 53,000 fans watched Toronto beat Calgary 35-22 there for the 100th Grey Cup in November 2012. But the momentum from that event has never translated into bigger home crowds for the Argos, who are averaging 17,562 spectators per game this year. After finishing first in the East Division last year, Toronto (3-8) has struggled yet remains tied with Hamilton (3-7) and Montreal (3-8) atop the conference standings. Braley, who bought the Argos in 2010, has been criticized this year for being an absentee owner and running the Argos on a tight budget. Players anonymously expressed their frustration having to practise at multiple venues this summer before moving into a permanent facility at Downsview Park late last month in a multi-year partnership with MLSE. In the front office, Toronto is currently without a head of ticket sales, director of corporate sales and a marketing director. Braley admits hes been bothered by the criticism hes faced. "I guess a little bit but I have to take the blame, Im the owner," he said. "But I have no intention of throwing the keys on the table. "Im making sure its supported properly, theres been no shortage of funds. Its an embarrassment we were almost three-to-four weeks late getting into our new quarters, that caused aggravation among people and I apologize. But we spent a considerable amount of money putting absolutely new facilities in place for the team to practise." Braley still intends to sell one -- or both -- of his teams come his 75th birthday. He says he has "several buyers" in place for the Lions franchise, which he bought in 97. "Those discussions will proceed after the end of the season," he said. "Well see how real they are for sale now, one year from now or down the road. "Thats just the normal process. I have multiple people, the question is to pick the best one for the team and for the league. Thats the tough part." ' ' '
