CHICAGO (AP) — Justin Upton doubled, tripled and drove in four runs; J.D. Martinez had three of Detroit’s season-high seven doubles and the Tigers this time held on to a big lead, beating the skidding Chicago White Sox 11-8 on Tuesday night.

After blowing a 7-0 lead in a 12-inning loss a night earlier, the Tigers raced to a 10-2 edge in the fourth and overcame a second straight subpar start by Jordan Zimmermann (9-3) for their eighth win in 10 games.

Zimmermann allowed six runs — four earned — and eight hits in seven innings, but got plenty of help.

Miguel Cabrera went 4 for 5 with two doubles for the Tigers, who had 16 hits and a baserunner in every inning.

Miguel Gonzalez (1-2) needed 91 pitches to get 10 outs, allowing seven runs and eight hits in Chicago’s 23rd loss in 32 games.
