    Jhonny Peralta's grand slam capped an eight-run sixth inning for Detroit, and the Tigers overcame Miguel Cabrera's ejection in a 12-4 win over the collapsing Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday. In the sixth, the Tigers scored eight runs on only two hits. Detroit scored eight runs on two hits in a circus of a sixth inning, punctuated by Jhonny Peralta's grand slam to right field his 10th home run of the season and the fourth grand slam of his career. Victor Martinez's bases-loaded walk made it 7-3, and Peralta followed with his 10th homer of the year and fourth career grand slam. Ramon Santiago's bunt single loaded the bases, and after Austin Jackson's flyout to shallow right field, Don Kelly's flyball to left was dropped by rookie Steve Susdorf for another error.
