ARLINGTON, Texas, April 25 (UPI) -- Michael Young drove in five runs on three hits and Dale Murphy homered Sunday as the Texas Rangers slugged their way to an 8-4 win over Detroit.

Murphy's dinger came in the first inning and began a Texas comeback after the Rangers spotted Detroit a 3-0 lead to start the game.

The Rangers completed the rally in the next inning, taking a 6-4 advantage when Elvis Andrus coaxed a bases-loaded walk and Young socked a three-run double off Tigers starter Rick Porcello (1-2).

The win went to Rangers starter Colby Lewis (3-0), who lasted 6 1/3 innings, allowing seven hits and four runs and fanning 10.

The Tigers were led by Ramon Santiago, who got two hits, knocked in a run and crossed the plate once while Austin Jackson chipped in with his first career homer.
