DETROIT, June 20 (UPI) -- Brennan Boesch and Carlos Guillen socked back-to-back homers in the seventh inning Sunday and the Detroit Tigers defeated Arizona 3-1 in an inter-league game.

After being shut out for six innings by Ian Kennedy (3-5), the Tigers finally broke through with three runs in the seventh frame. After Miguel Cabrera led off with a single, Boesch homered to right to put Detroit up 2-1.

Guillen then followed with a solo blast, helping the Tigers take the rubber match of a three-game set with the D-backs at Tiger Stadium.

Max Scherzer (4-6) pitched seven solid innings, allowing only one run on four hits over seven innings, striking out eight and walking two. Jose Valverde got his 16th save with a scoreless ninth.

Kennedy pitched well in defeat, surrendering six hits, walking none and fanning five.
