Joakim Soria closed it out for his third save.

Rajai Davis had two hits and an RBI, while Ian Kinsler drove in the other run for Detroit, who improves to 7-and-1.

A.J. Burnett fanned eight in six-and-two-thirds innings of one-run ball, but fell to 0-and-1 with the tough-luck loss.

The Pirates are 3-and-5.

The two teams play the final game of their series tonight in Pittsburgh.

First pitch is 7:05 p.m.
