DETROIT (AP) - Tampa Bay's Chris Archer came within two outs of a complete game, holding the Detroit Tigers to six hits in the Rays' 7-2 victory Saturday.
   
The Rays broke the game open with three runs in the fifth inning and four in the sixth, and the Tigers never mounted much of a rally against Archer (5-5). The 25-year-old right-hander allowed solo homers to Alex Avila in the seventh and J.D. Martinez in the ninth.
   
Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon finally pulled him with two on and one out in the ninth after 106 pitches.
   
Anibal Sanchez (5-3) took a no-hitter into the fifth, but things unraveled quickly for the Detroit right-hander. He allowed seven runs and six hits in 5 2-3 innings, with four walks and a strikeout.
   
Logan Forsythe homered for Tampa Bay.
