Miguel Cabrera hit a two-run double in the bottom of the ninth and the Detroit Tigers overcame Todd Jones' blown save to beat the Colorado Rockies 7-6 on Saturday night.

With their fourth straight win and 14th in 17 games, the Tigers improved to .500 for the first time this season.

The Rockies used three consecutive two-out hits to claw back from a three-run deficit in the top of the ninth. But closer Brian Fuentes gave up a single, a walk and Cabrera's double to blow his fourth save of the year.

Colorado lost its sixth straight game. The Rockies have lost six or more in a row three times this season.
