Cabrera Hits 300th HR as Tigers Beat Sox
DETROIT (AP) -- Miguel Cabrera homered twice, reaching the 300 mark for his career and helping the Detroit Tigers finish a three-game sweep of the Chicago White Sox with a 6-4 victory Sunday.

Detroit wrapped up a 6-1 homestand against the White Sox and Los Angeles Angels and now leads the AL Central by 1 1/2 games over Chicago. The White Sox have lost five straight.

Cabrera became the second Venezuela-born player to reach 300 home runs. Andres Galarraga hit 399.

Quintin Berry and Brennan Boesch also homered for Detroit to help rookie Jacob Turner (1-1) earn his first career win. Four relievers pitched for the Tigers, with Joaquin Benoit working a perfect ninth for his second save of the year.

Philip Humber (4-5) allowed six runs in three innings.
