 DETROIT (AP) -- Anibal Sanchez was outstanding for a second straight start, throwing a two-hit shutout to lift the Detroit Tigers to a 6-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night. Sanchez (5-7) struck out seven without a walk, and he did not allow a baserunner after the fourth inning. The right-hander did not get off to a good start this season, but his past two outings have been a major step in the right direction. He held the Chicago Cubs scoreless for 7 2-3 innings last Tuesday. Cincinnati starter Jon Moscot had to leave the game in the first after dislocating his non-throwing shoulder while tagging out a runner. Pedro Villarreal (0-1) pitched 3 1-3 innings of relief and kept the Reds in the game, but Detroit scored four in the sixth off Nate Adcock. Miguel Cabrera hit a two-run double and J.D. Martinez added a two-run homer in that inning.
