Tigers Win Second In A Row, Beat Rays 6-3 5-24-2011

Victor Martinez hit a two-run double and Jhonny Peralta had a two-run single in the eighth inning, lifting the Detroit Tigers to a 6-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night.
Charlie Furbush (1-0) pitched 3 2-3 scoreless innings of relief in his major league debut after Detroit starter Phil Coke was injured.
Former Rays reliever Joaquin Benoit worked a scoreless eighth.
Jose Valverde gave up two runs in the ninth but avoided a total collapse by getting former Tiger Johnny Damon to line out to first baseman Miguel Cabrera with two on.
Jeremy Hellickson (5-3) allowed two runs and four hits in 6 1-3 innings.
He had a shot to be the first Tampa Bay rookie to win five straight starts, but his light-hitting teammates weren't much help.
