— Rick Porcello pitched four-hit ball over seven scoreless innings, Jhonny Peralta homered and the Detroit Tigers took advantage of four errors in a 6-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night.
With MVP and Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera sidelined by a hip problem, the AL Central leaders again got all the help they needed from Chicago. One night after matching what was a season-high with three errors in a 7-3 loss to the Tigers, the White Sox managed to outdo themselves.
Peralta delivered an RBI single and scored in a three-run fourth in which the Tigers took advantage of two errors. He also hit a solo drive off Hector Santiago in the sixth, and Detroit scored three in the inning to go up 6-0.
Porcello won his third straight start after dropping three in a row.
— American League MVP and Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera was unavailable for the Detroit Tigers against the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday because of an injured left hip.
Manager Jim Leyland confirmed his star would not play but revealed little else. He would not say how concerned the team is, or if a trip to the disabled list is a possibility.
Cabrera left Monday's 7-3 win over Chicago after scoring in the fifth inning. He was replaced at third base by Don Kelly with one out in the bottom half and walked off holding his left side. The team said he had a sore hip flexor muscle and would be evaluated on Tuesday.
With Cabrera out, the Tigers had Kelly at third and batting seventh and left fielder Matt Tuiasosopo hitting third.
