Rios ties AL mark with 6 hits in White Sox's win - Jul 10th, 2013 - Sports

— 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 gave up a season-high 12 hits, five runs and struck out three to match a season low in seven-plus innings.

— The Detroit Tigers have placed second baseman Omar Infante on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday and recalled infielder Hernan Perez from Double-A Erie.

The move is retroactive to July 4, so Infante will be eligible for activation after the All-Star break.

Infante hasn't played since last Wednesday, when he was hit hard by Toronto's Colby Rasmus, who was sliding into second base.

Tigers manager Jim Leyland says he expects Infante to be OK after the break. Infante is hitting .309 with six homers and 27 RBIs this season.

Perez started in his place in the series opener against the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night. He made his major league debut last month, playing in two games for the Tigers.
