Ordonez's HR lifts Tigers to 6-5 win against Cubs

DETROIT – DETROIT (AP) - Magglio Ordonez ended a career-long, 40-game drought without a home run by connecting for the go-ahead shot, leading the Detroit Tigers over the Chicago Cubs 6-5 for their seventh straight victory.

Ordonez connected for a two-run homer in the fourth inning. The AL Central leaders held on to complete the sweep, and matched their longest winning streak of the season.

Ordonez had two hits Wednesday in his first game since cutting his flowing locks. Maybe the slump was in his hair, which is now being auctioned off on eBay for charity.
