HOUSTON (AP) Wilson Ramos hit two home runs and Renato Nunez and rookie Akil Baddoo each homered for the second straight game as the Detroit Tigers slugged their way to an 8-2 win over the Houston Astros on Tuesday night.
Ramos has stepped into the cleanup spot with Miguel Cabrera sidelined by a biceps injury, and his six homers lead the majors.
"Miggy is one of the leaders of this team and we need him back," Ramos said. "But since he's not here right now I have to take that spot he left. I'm very happy for what I'm doing right now. I don't want to be Miggy's bat, but I want to give support to my team."
