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.
