Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez both had three hits, an RBI and scored a run for the Tigers, who have won seven of their last nine. Rick Porcello pitched six innings of three-run ball to even his record at 6-and-6. Joaquin Benoit closed it out for his eighth save. Conor Gillaspie and Gordon Beckham both hit solo homers for the ChiSox, who have dropped five-of-six.
