Miguel Cabrera singled home Kerry Carpenter with the winning run in the top of the 10th inning, as the Tigers edged the Angels 5-4 Saturday night. Rookie starter Sawyer Gipson-Long turned in five impressive innings, striking out 11, while giving up a run on two hits. Zack Short’s three-run homer in the second inning gave Detroit an early lead, but two Angels home runs off Alex Lange in the bottom of the ninth forced the extra inning. Will Vest pitched the bottom of the 10th, and earned the save.
