    Johnny Damon drove in two runs and scored twice, helping the Detroit Tigers overcome an early four-run deficit in an 8-4 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday night.

    Scott Feldman (1-2) squandered a 4-0 lead by allowing eight runs, four earned, and eight hits over 3 2-3 innings. The right-hander walked four and threw a wild pitch on which Detroit scored two runs to go ahead to stay.

    Damon was batting in the fourth when Feldman's breaking ball in the dirt went to the brick-facade backstop and ricocheted up the third-base line. Ryan Raburn scored from third and Ramon Santiago kept coming from second, sliding safely into home when catcher Taylor Teagarden was charged with an error for dropping third baseman Michael Young's toss.
