Austin Jackson homered and drove in three runs, Torii Hunter added two doubles and a triple, and the Detroit Tigers beat the Oakland Athletics 10-1 Sunday.

Anibal Sanchez overcame a sluggish start to pitch seven innings, winning his second straight outing and giving Detroit's bullpen a needed rest. Sanchez matched his season-high of eight strikeouts and walked four.

Jackson finished with four hits and Miguel Cabrera drove in two runs for the Tigers, who have won three of four.

Derek Norris doubled and drove in the lone run for the A's. Oakland, which entered the game leading the majors in several offensive categories, struck out 38 times in the three-game series.
