DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – The Tigers broke open a tie game in the sixth inning to go on and beat the Los Angeles Angels 12-2 at Comerica Park on Friday night.

As heard on 97.1 The Ticket, the Detroit bats came alive as both Victor Martinez and Carlos Guillen came up with four RBI’s each for the Tigers, while Ramon Santiago added three hits.

Guillen’s two-run triple highlighted the four-run sixth inning.

Rick Porcello (11-6) allowed two runs and five hits in eight innings, striking out six.

Tyler Chatwood (6-7) gave up six runs on eight hits and two walks in 5 1-3 innings. The Angels had won three straight and five of seven.

With one out in the sixth, Martinez gave the Tigers a 3-2 lead with an RBI single, and Guillen followed with his first triple since July 9, 2010. Alex Avila drove in Guillen with a base hit, ending Chatwood’s night and putting Detroit up 6-2.
