Tigers complete sweep of Brewers with 3-2 series finale win

DETROIT (AP) -- Brandon Inge hit a three-run homer and Justin Verlander pitched into the eighth inning to help the Detroit Tigers sweep the Milwaukee Brewers with a 3-2 win Sunday.

Verlander (8-3), who no-hit the Brewers in his only other start against them, allowed two runs on five hits in 7 2-3 innings. He struck out eight while improving to 8-1 since April 27. Fernando Rodney pitched the ninth for his 14th straight save.

Yovani Gallardo (7-4) shut out the Tigers for the first five innings, but allowed Inge's homer to left in the sixth after singles by Miguel Cabrera and Don Kelly.
