WEST ALLIS, Wis. -- Will Power gave Tony Kanaan a friendly tap on the arm when someone asked the fellow IndyCar driver about what it took to succeed at the Milwaukee Mile. "Tell me!" Power joked. No need -- Power did just fine on his own Saturday. The IndyCar series points leader will start at the pole Sunday after being the only driver to surpass 169 mph in qualifying. What a nice way to start the final three weeks of the season for Power, who has a slim lead over Team Penske teammate Helio Castroneves in the standings. "Obviously, a win tomorrow would be phenomenal as far as the championship goes," Power said before narrowing his focus. "Just no other way to approach it but just be smart and keep your head down lap by lap. You cant even think about the overall picture." Power topped qualifying Saturday with a lap at 169.262 mph. Castroneves will start eighth. Tony Kanaan qualified second at 168.662 mph for his seventh straight top-10 start. A third Penske driver, Juan Pablo Montoya, will start third. After a week off in the series, the Milwaukee race begins a three-week stretch to end the season. Kanaan led a strong contingent from Chip Ganassi Racing, which will start four drivers in the top 11. Kanaan won at the Mile in 2006 and 2007. "Weve been showing how quick weve been, how good weve been everywhere. Weve just really got to get a little bit of luck on our side sometime," Kanaan said. "Hopefully tomorrow well challenge Will and some of the guys." Power took his third pole of the season, and the first since qualifying first in June at Texas. The race is promoted by team owner Michael Andretti. The highest-qualifying Andretti Autosport driver was Marco Andretti, who will start ninth. Ryan Hunter-Reay, third in the standings, will start in the second-to-last row in 19th place. Hunter-Reay won at Milwaukee the previous two years. "We just missed the balance entirely today in qualifying -- it wasnt even close," he said. "Unfortunately, we are going to have to pay for it tomorrow." Andretti driver James Hinchcliffe had the top speeds at both practice sessions earlier Saturday, but made contact with the wall late in the second session. Hinchcliffe said the car was fine, but track conditions had changed by the time of his qualifying run. He will start in 13th position. Mitchell Marner Jersey for youth .

Alex Rios tripled and drove in three runs, and the Rangers rolled to another rout of Detroit, beating Justin Verlander and the Tigers 12-4 on Sunday. Texas took three of four in the series, scoring 35 runs in the process. The question now is whether the Rangers can possibly keep this up after learning Thursday that Fielder would likely miss the rest of the season because of a neck problem. "Weve got to continue to play baseball," manager Ron Washington said. "We miss Prince, and were not going to even dream that we dont need him in our lineup. We certainly would like to have him in our lineup, but we dont, so weve got to go with what weve got." The Tigers have lost six of seven, and even Verlander (5-4) couldnt come close to stopping the slide. The Detroit right-hander allowed nine runs -- six earned -- in 5 1-3 innings in one of the worst starts of his career. "Right now, Im not in a place where I can repeat my delivery every time, and thats what I need to fix. But Ill get it straightened out. Im not worried about that," Verlander said. "Its a rough patch, but this is a great baseball team. That hasnt changed." Michael Choice homered for the Rangers in the second, and Texas broke the game open with five runs in the fifth. Colby Lewis (4-3) allowed two runs and five hits in 5 2-3 innings. Mitch Moreland had three hits and three RBIs for the Rangers, and Adrian Beltre and Robinson Chirinos had three hits apiece as well. "Everybody on this team has contributed so far, has stepped up in one way or another," Moreland said. "I think this was just a big series for us overall, to kind of right the ship, get it going." Detroit slugger Miguel Cabrera left the game in the seventh with a right hamstring cramp. Verlander has allowed 16 earned runs in his past three starts, and although the Tigers still have the best record in the American League, they have to wonder when this alarming stretch of poor pitching will end.dddddddddddd Other starters have struggled too. In its past seven games, Detroit has allowed 57 runs. The nine runs allowed by Verlander equaled a career worst, and he gave up 11 hits. Verlander finished with only one strikeout, his fewest in a regular-season game since May 31, 2008, when he also struck out one at Seattle. "Its good to get him early," Rios said. "The earlier you get him, the better shape youre going to be in at the end of the game." Choice broke a 1-all tie with a second-inning homer off Verlander, and after a double by Chirinos, Rougned Odor dropped a bunt that Verlander threw away for an error, allowing a run to score. Texas led 3-2 in the fifth when Shin-Soo Choo led off with a walk and went to third when Elvis Andrus grounder went past shortstop Andrew Romine for another Detroit error. Moreland and Beltre followed with consecutive RBI singles, and a two-run triple by Rios made it 7-2. Chirinos singled home Rios two outs later. The Rangers tacked on three runs in the seventh to make it 12-2 on RBI singles by Andrus, Moreland and Beltre. Cabrera came out of the game after singling in the bottom of that inning, and to make matters worse for Detroit, reliever Joba Chamberlain left in the eighth with a right ankle contusion. The Rangers finished with 17 hits, bringing their total for the last two games of the series to 36 -- with 14 for extra bases. NOTES: Even Sundays time of game was the same as the day before: 3 hours, 43 minutes. ... Choo, who left Saturdays game with a sore left ankle, was back in the Texas lineup a day later but as the designated hitter. ... Detroit 2B Ian Kinsler extended his hitting streak to 11 games. ... The Tigers head to Oakland for a four-game series between the teams with the two best records in the AL. Detroit LHP Drew Smyly (2-2) faces Oakland LHP Tommy Milone (2-3) on Monday. ... Texas heads to Minnesota, with RHP Nick Tepesch (1-0) taking the mound Monday against Twins RHP Kevin Correia (2-5).
