Brandon Inge homered, rookie Rick Porcello won his fourth straight start and the Detroit Tigers topped Colorado 4-3 on Friday for their seventh victory in a row.
Porcello (5-3) gave up six hits and the lone Rockies run in the first six innings. A pair of defensive plays helped him leave the game with the lead.
The right-hander, who won’t turn 21 until December, matched Dave Rozema’s 1977 team record for consecutive wins by a rookie.
Detroit got its first two runs off Ubaldo Jimenez (3-5) in the second when Gerald Laird came home on a wild pitch and on Placido Polanco’sRBI single. Inge hit his 12th homer of the season an inning later and drove in the club’s final run in the eighth.
