DETROIT (AP) -- Alex Rios tied an American League mark with six hits in a nine-inning game and Adam Dunn hit a go-ahead, two-run homer off Justin Verlander in the eighth to lift the Chicago White Sox to an 11-4 win over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday.
Dayan Vicideo's second homer of the game helped the White Sox score seven runs in the eighth inning, and they scored three more runs in the ninth to surpass a season high for scoring.
Miguel Cabrera hit his 29th homer, an impressive blast to left-center, to give him a major league high 92 RBIs and .363 batting average.
He broke the franchise record for homers before the All-Star game, surpassing the total Cecil Fielder had at the break in 1990 during his 51-homer season
Verlander (9-6) gave up a season-high 12 hits, five runs and struck out three to match a season low in seven-plus innings.
Rios singled in the first, tripled in the third and also singled twice in the eighth inning. He also singled in the fifth and ninth innings...

Chicago White Sox slugger Alex Rios becomes the 32nd Major League Baseball player to have six base hits on six at-bats in a nine inning game. Rios was also the first player to collect four base hits off Cy Young winner, Justin Verlander who seemed to be throwing batting practice as he gave up 12 of the teams 23 hits Tuesday night. Verlander...
A goal, an assist and a fight. A gino, a helper and a tilly. That’s The Gordie Howe Hat Trick, a rare feat in the game of hockey that honors the gritty and the skilled. It’s a feat that its namesake, Mr. Hockey himself, actually only did twice in his career – it’s named more for his career-long achievements in point production and face punching.
Well, it’s high time that...
The Detroit Tigers have placed second baseman Omar Infante on the 15-day DL with a left ankle sprain. The Tigers tweeted the news a few hours before their Tuesday night game against the Chicago White Sox.

49-39, 1st place, 3.5 games up on Cle.
The Tigers head home for 6 against the White Sox and Rangers after a successful 7-4 road trip that ended with the club taking 3 of 4 from Cle. The White Sox are not good. We gotta win the series.
A few stars from last night’s game, other than VMart.
1) Brayan Pena. Pena made one of the smartest plays you’ll see all season. In case you missed...
Prince Fielder homered, Rick Porcello pitched six solid innings and the Detroit Tigers bounced back Wednesday night with an 8-5 victory over the Chicago White Sox.
Detroit allowed 23 hits in an 11-4 loss to the White Sox on Tuesday, but it was the Tigers who did the slugging early on in this game. Fielder lined a two-run shot to right field in the first inning for his 16th homer...
Max Scherzer didn't care that his record stayed spotless. All that mattered to him was that Detroit's improved.
Scherzer remained unbeaten and Victor Martinez hit a two-run double in the 10th inning as the Tigers extended their lead in the AL Central with a 4-2 win over the second-place Cleveland Indians on Monday night.
Martinez doubled off Matt Albers (2-1) as the Tigers...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Max Scherzer remained unbeaten and Victor Martinez hit a two-run double in the 10th inning as the Detroit Tigers extended their lead in the AL Central with a 4-2 win over the second-place Cleveland Indians on Monday night.
Martinez doubled off Matt Albers (2-1) as the Tigers won three of four in the series and moved 3 games ahead in the division.

Here, for maybe the first time in the history of the Internet, is a post inspired by Hernan Perez. Hernan Perez is a professional baseball player, currently for the Detroit Tigers. He has batted a few times, and is 22. Hasn’t been real good in the minors. Might be getting better. A few years ago he was a teammate of Wondy De Los Santos, who is also a professional baseball player...
Mixed-league roto owners, looking for a waiver-wire pitcher before Wednesday's full slate of games?
Here's my free-agent choice (citing most 12-team leagues) for one day of fantasy stardom:
Rick Porcello (Tigers) vs. White Sox
1. Of his last 10 starts, Porcello has surrendered three or less runs seven times. In that span, he allowed zero or one run five times.
Anyone familiar with Hawk Harrelson's penchant for going totally silent during particularly painful Chicago White Sox moments might sometimes wonder if Harrelson is still in fact alive in the booth. The unabashed homer who's been calling Sox games for two decades is still kicking at the age of 71, but when he does die he wants it to happen in that exact spot.
Chicago closer Kevin Gregg may be on the Detroit Tigers’ radar as the July 31 trade deadline approaches. But what about starter Matt Garza, who, like Gregg, will be a free agent after this season?
ESPN’s Jim Bowden, formerly the GM for the Reds and Nationals, suggests a package deal that sends Garza and Gregg to the Tigers for Avisail Garcia, Rick Porcello and 2012 second-round...
It is game two of the three game series.
Dylan Axelrod is in the mound office today. So far there is no rain, so it looks like an on time start.
Grab that snack and see you soon.

The Chicago White Sox should be in a full rebuilding mode in a couple of weeks. Currently sitting 34-51, Chicago is 13 games back of both the division and nearest wildcard. A team with a weak farm system, it would be wisest for the White Sox to trade off any assets under contract with value for the next couple of years.
While players like Adam Dunn may have too much owed or pitchers...
