Carlos Guillen’s two-run triple highlighted a four-run sixth inning as the Detroit Tigers went on to beat the Los Angeles Angels, 12-2.

Guillen and Victor Martinez finished with four RBIs, while Ramon Santiago added three hits.

Rick Porcello (11-6) allowed two runs & five hits in eight innings while striking out six. Porcello finished a perfect 5-0 for the month of July.

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.

Martinez and Guillen added RBI doubles in the seventh to give the Tigers a six-run lead, and the pair both drove in runs for the third straight inning in Detroit’s three-run eighth.
