Torii Hunter went 3-for-4 with three RBI to lead the Detroit Tigers to a three-game sweep of the Oakland Athletics with a 9-3 rout on Wednesday.

Austin Jackson broke out of an 0-for-15 slump with three hits, two runs and an RBI, and Miguel Cabrera knocked in a pair for Detroit, which has won 11 of its last 13.

Detroit starter Justin Verlander earned the win in his first July start, something he couldn't do in five June outings. The right-hander went 0-3 with a 6.82 ERA over five starts in June, but quickly made amends on Wednesday.

Verlander (7-7) went six innings and allowed just two runs on nine hits with four strikeouts. He didn't allow a walk for the first time all season.

Brandon Moss went 4-for-4 and came a triple shy of the cycle, knocking in two runs for the A's, who concluded an eight-game road trip with three straight losses following four straight wins.

Coco Crisp also homered in the setback.

Jesse Chavez (6-5) was touched up for five runs on eight hits and four walks over five-plus innings.
