DETROIT (AP) - Anthony Gose doubled and homered, Anibal Sanchez pitched through a wild outing and the Detroit Tigers beat Oakland 7-3 Thursday to take three of four in the series against the Athletics.
Gose entering with a .170 and had not gotten an extra-base hit since homering on opening day.
Sanchez (3-2) scraped through 5 2/3 innings while still searching for his proper mechanics. Sanchez allowed two runs and three hits while striking out nine, but walked seven - one shy of his big league high. He allowed three runners to steal without a throw.
Sanchez was the first Tigers starter to walk seven and strike out nine in the same start since Jack Morris against Texas on April 14, 1988.
