NEW YORK (AP) - Miguel Cabrera homered against the Yankees again and had three hits while playing on a bandaged leg and Torii Hunter connected and drove in four runs Saturday, leading the Detroit Tigers over New York 9-3.

Anibal Sanchez (10-7) tossed seven easy innings against a Yankees lineup that was without Alex Rodriguez. Manager Joe Girardi said he was giving the third baseman a day off after he struck out three times in his season debut in the Bronx.

Austin Jackson followed a four-hit, three-double night Friday with a homer and triple against the organization that drafted him. Don Kelly had a two-run single off Phil Hughes (4-11) as the AL Central leaders win for the 17th time in 21 games.

Cabrera hit his 35th home run. He had big, square Band-Aid on his left shin after fouling two balls off himself Friday night.

BLUE JAYS 5, ATHLETICS 4

TORONTO (AP) - Josh Reddick hit two home runs, a day after connecting three times for Oakland, but the Toronto Blue Jays got shots from Jose Bautista and Jose Reyes to beat the Athletics.

Reddick had homered only five times this season before launching a trio of longballs Friday night in a 14-6 romp. He tied the major league record for homers over two games.

Reddick hit a two-run drive off Mark Buehrle (8-7) in the second inning and a leadoff home run in the ninth against Casey Janssen, who got his 21st save.

The A's lost for the seventh time in nine games.

Buehrle (8-7) won his third straight decision. He allowed three runs and seven hits in 5 1-3 innings.

Sonny Gray (0-1) went six innings in his first major league start.

WHITE SOX 5, TWINS 4

CHICAGO (AP) - Conor Gillaspie lined a go-ahead single in the sixth inning and the Chicago White Sox rallied past Minnesota.

Jordan Danks homered and rookie Andre Rienzo pitched 5 1-3 innings in his home debut as the White Sox snapped a five-game losing streak against the Twins.

Justin Morneau and Oswaldo Arcia homered for the Twins.

David Purcey (1-1) struck out two in an inning for the win. Addison Reed earned his 28th save in 33 chances.

Mike Pelfrey (4-10) allowed five runs in five-plus innings.
