Davis had a double, a triple and stole a homer from David Ross, while Sanchez (4-7) ended a four-start slump that saw Detroit lose all four starts while he posted a 7.71 ERA.
Sanchez allowed six hits and walked two while striking out seven.
Jon Lester (4-5) took the loss, giving up five runs on nine hits and two walks in 4 1/3 innings.
Davis led off the first with a double, took third on David Ross’ passed ball and scored on Miguel Cabrera’s single to center.
