DETROIT (AP) - Miguel Cabrera's three-run homer in the seventh inning broke the game open, and the Detroit Tigers finished off a 3-game sweep of the Atlanta Braves with an 8-3 victory Sunday night.

Austin Jackson and Omar Infante also homered for the Tigers, and Doug Fister (4-0) struck out eight in seven innings on a rainy night at Comerica Park.

Mike Minor (3-2) allowed a three-run homer to Jackson in the third, and although the Braves came back to tie it, Cabrera doubled and scored in the sixth to make it 4-3.

Infante hit a solo shot in the seventh, and Cabrera added an opposite-field homer off reliever Cory Gearrin.

Atlanta has lost four straight and is 3-8 since a 12-1 start.

Cabrera extended his hitting streak to 12 games.
