KANSAS CITY, Mo. cheap jerseys . -- The Detroit Tigers had already clinched the AL Central title, so manager Jim Leyland decided he would start getting his starting staff in order against the Kansas City Royals. Max Scherzer began the game Wednesday night and went five strong innings. Doug Fister came into the game in relief and was even better, tossing three scoreless frames. And Jose Valverde finished up the Tigers 6-3 victory for his 47th save in as many chances. Just like Leyland had drawn up. "That was just what we got to do," Leyland said. "We have to get everything lined up for the playoffs, so we used our pitching like that tonight, and it worked out fine." No kidding. Ryan Raburn was hit by a pitch from Kelvin Herrera (0-1) in the eighth inning and eventually scored the go-ahead run. Don Kelly added a two-run shot moments later, and Victor Martinez added the other three RBIs as Detroit wrapped up a long road trip with its 25th win in 32 games. "I feel very good about the playoffs," said Scherzer, who allowed two runs in his five innings of work. Fister (10-13) allowed an unearned run the three innings he was in the game. The late rally off Herrera by the AL Central champs spoiled the Royals chance to finish with a winning record at home for the first time since 2000. Instead, Kansas City heads out for a season-ending six-game road trip with a 40-41 mark at Kauffman Stadium. "Its my first time," said Herrera, who admitted being a bit nervous. "Ive got to do more than that." Detroit struck first when Felipe Paulino walked Austin Jackson to lead off the game. The speedy Tigers outfielder stole second base easily and then scored on Martinezs single. Kansas City answered in the bottom half of the first with RBI doubles by Billy Butler and Jeff Francoeur. Butlers double was his 40th of the season, making Kansas City only the fourth franchise in major league history with four players with that many doubles. The other teams to accomplish the feat were the 2006 Rangers, the 32 Phillies and the 29 Tigers. Martinez tied the game with an RBI groundout in the fifth. The Royals pulled back ahead in the sixth when Melky Cabrera led off with a double. Butler singled to right field moments later, and Raburn -- who had entered the game as a pinch hitter in the top of the inning -- couldnt get a handle on the ball. His error allowed Cabrera to scamper home. Everything unravelled for the Royals when Herrera entered the game in the eighth inning, and the Tigers capitalized on his mistakes to win for the 27th time in their last 40 away from home. Now, they head back to Comerica Park for four games against the Orioles and three against the Indians, and then its on to bigger and -- the Tigers hope -- better things. "Its awesome. We came out and played hard, played 100 per cent," Detroit slugger Miguel Cabrera said. "Its going to be nice going home and getting ready for the playoffs."

Cody Eakin, Stephane Robidas and Ryan Garbutt produced a three-goal flurry in a 53-second span of the third period, and the Stars beat the Pacific Division-leading Anaheim Ducks 6-3 on Tuesday night for their first home win in more than month. "We were just still talking on the bench about, OK, its a tie game. Lets get this thing (under control), stay the course, do that, and next its 3-2," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "It just went boom, boom. They got the goal, and the crowd got into it, and then the rest is history." After giving up a goal to Nick Bonino in the final seconds of the second period that put the Ducks ahead 2-1, Dallas wiped out that deficit with the fastest three-goal stretch in the NHL since January 2012. "Youre thinking that we fought hard to tie it up and want to go into the third period and try to play a 20-minute period of the win, and now were going to chase the game again as soon as we come out," Stars coach Lindy Ruff said. "But we were able to turn it, I can tell you a nice story now. Otherwise, we might have blamed the game on that late goal." Eakins sixth goal of the season tied it 2-2 with 14:35 left. Only 25 seconds later, Robidas was between the circles when he scored his fourth of the season. Garbutt then gathered a loose puck and scored with a backhanded swipe with 13:42 left to make it 4-2. He didnt realize how quickly the trio of goals had come. "But it was pretty cool," said Garbutt, who also had two assists. Fans in the building were suddenly in a frenzy as Boudreau finally called timeout. "We might have had to have a little bottle of NoDoz after the first period, but we woke them up in the third," Ruff said. Roussel was in the crease when he netted his second goal with just under 8 minutes left. Hiller quickly argued with the referee to no avail, trying to get an interference call. Dan Ellis stopped 28 shots, winning for only the second time in seven games. Dallas had been 0-2-2 at home since a 5-1 victory over Calgary on Oct. 24. Emerson Etem, Nick Bonino and Dustin& Penner scored for the Ducks, who are 10-4-3 in their last 17 games. cheap nfl jerseys. Penners tally was a power-play goal with 6 1/2 minutes left. "It does happen quickly," Ducks centre Andrew Cogliano said. "When momentum turns and it starts going the other way, its really hard to stop it." The Stars played the first of three straight home games. Next is Friday night against the Central Division-leading Chicago Blackhawks, who have an NHL-best 38 points -- one more than Anaheim and St. Louis. This was the second of three meetings this season for the former Pacific Division rivals who used to play six times a season. It was the only trip to Dallas for the Ducks, who won 6-3 at home on Oct. 20 and will host the Stars again on Feb. 1. Hiller, who faced 32 shots, gave up three goals on 12 shots against the Stars in the previous matchup before he was pulled from the game. Boninos seventh of the season came with 36 seconds left in the second period. He took a pass from Cogliano, and the puck went off his skate before he used his stick to score from the right side of the net for a 2-1 lead. Etem scored from in front 6:06 into the game to give the Ducks a 1-0 lead. Roussel tied it when the puck caromed in off his skate with 6:47 left in the second period. Officials reviewed the goal before ruling that it wasnt kicked into the net to the left of Hiller after a pass from Vernon Fiddler. "That was a team win," Roussel said. "Were very excited about that win because everybody was involved." NOTES: The three-goal spurt was the fastest in the NHL since Montreal scored three in 50 seconds in the third period of a 7-3 win over Winnipeg on Jan. 4, 2012. ... Stars D Sergei Gonchar played his 1,200th NHL game, joining Alexei Kovalev and Sergei Federov as the only Russian-born players to reach that mark. ...
