NEW YORK -- Miguel Cabrera hit a mammoth homer, Rick Porcello enjoyed a happy homecoming and the Detroit Tigers polished off a three-game sweep of the New York Mets with an 11-3 victory Sunday. Austin Rivers Jersey . Andy Dirks put Detroit ahead with a two-run shot, and the AL Central leaders improved to 12-5 in interleague play. They have won 34 of 49 overall, the best mark in the American League since July 2. Porcello (10-7) pitched seven innings of four-hit ball before the Tigers broke it open with a seven-run ninth. Dirks drew a bases-loaded walk during the outburst, which included RBI singles by Victor Martinez and Ramon Santiago. Travis dArnaud hit his first major league homer for the Mets, who have scored five runs during a four-game slide. They were outhit 33-7 in the final two games of the series. Dillon Gee (9-9) lost for only the third time in 16 starts. He entered with a 2.27 ERA since May 30, the fourth-best mark in the majors during that span. The 24-year-old Porcello, who grew up nearby in New Jersey, left 17 tickets for family and friends. He didnt disappoint them, either, bouncing back from a loss to Minnesota and moving to 6-1 in his past nine outings. The right-hander was hit hard in his only other start against the Mets on June 28, 2011, in Detroit. He pitched at Yankee Stadium a little more than two weeks ago, taking a no-decision in Detroits 4-3 defeat. The Tigers were trailing by one when Victor Martinez singled off Gee to start the sixth. Dirks, who had three of Detroits 13 hits Saturday off All-Star ace Matt Harvey, drove an 0-1 delivery to right-centre for his eighth home run. Gee lasted six innings for the 11th straight start, the longest streak of his career, and 15th time in 16 outings. But he matched a season high by giving up 10 hits -- five in the sixth. Austin Jackson opened the game with a soft single and Cabrera launched a 2-0 pitch toward left field, where it cleared a railing in the second deck and sailed through a triangular opening beneath the restaurant windows. The drive induced a collective gasp from the crowd of 32,084 on Tom Seaver bobblehead day and gave Cabrera 42 home runs to go with a major league-high 128 RBIs. Trying to become the first player to win consecutive Triple Crowns, he began the day five homers behind Baltimore slugger Chris Davis. It was Cabreras second long ball of the series and 10th in 19 games. He finished 3 for 4 with a walk. A broken-bat single by Daniel Murphy with two outs in the third cut it to 2-1, and dArnaud put the Mets ahead one inning later with a two-run shot that barely cleared the shortened fence in left-centre. A top prospect, dArnaud was acquired from Toronto in a trade for Cy Young Award winner R.A. Dickey last off-season. Before connecting, he was 1 for 16 in the big leagues since getting called up Aug. 16. Considered the Mets catcher of the future, dArnaud popped out of the dugout to take a curtain call for fans hoping to see much more of the same in years to come. Detroit reliever Bruce Rondon worked around a leadoff walk in the eighth to protect a 4-3 lead. NOTES: Tigers SS Jose Iglesias sat out again with a sore left elbow after getting hit by a pitch Friday. He was replaced by Santiago, who had three hits and made two nice plays to rob Ike Davis. ... Martinez, normally a DH, started at catcher for the second time in the series. Martinez, who missed last season following knee surgery, was behind the plate Friday for the first time in more than two years. ... Detroit C Alex Avila (concussion symptoms) went 0 for 3 with a walk Saturday as the DH in his second rehab game for Triple-A Toledo. Avila did not report any headaches, the Tigers said. ... Detroit begins a seven-game homestand Monday night against Oakland. Manager Jim Leyland said hell probably rest 2B Omar Infante one day during the four-game series against the Athletics. ... Mets manager Terry Collins rested 3B Wilmer Flores (ankle) partly because he plans to play the rookie at 2B one day this week. Justin Turner started at third and grounded into two double plays. ... Rookie RHP Zack Wheeler (6-2, 3.49 ERA) faces All-Star lefty Cliff Lee (10-6, 3.16) on Monday night in the opener of a four-game series against Philadelphia. Chris Paul Jersey . The Yankees made the moves before Tuesdays game against Baltimore. Robertson was listed retroactive to Monday. Robertson posted two saves in three games as the replacement for retired Yankees closer Mariano Rivera before getting hurt. Custom Los Angeles Clippers Jerseys . -- Arizona pitcher Bronson Arroyo is expected to miss a week to 10 days because of a back injury. http://www.clippersnbateamshop.com/ . The incident occurred at 6:28 of the first period in Anaheims 6-3 home win over Dallas on Sunday. Garbutt left the penalty box and skated at Penner before leaving his skates to deliver a check.Each week, The Reporters put their thumbs out to the good and the bad in the world of sports. This week, they discuss the womens World Cup being played on turf, McMaster Universitys surprising hiring of Glen Grunwald, the Spurs hiring of Becky Hammon, and Tom Watsons performance at the PGA Championship. Bruce Arthur, Toronto Star My thumb is down to the storm around Canadas 2015 womens World Cup of soccer, which now features about 40 prominent players, from Abby Wambach to Alex Morgan, threatening a lawsuit with high-powered lawyers because the tournament is the first World Cup to be played on artificial turf. They claim thats discrimination. Now, the way the threat was delivered seems silly on the surface, sure. But the fact that a World Cup will take place on turf for the first time is ridiculous, too. Just like, say, playing the mens World Cup in Qatar in the summer of 2022, or in Russia in 2018. Its almost like theres a mess almost every time now. Maybe FIFA, when it comes to venues, isnt discriminating enough. Steve Simmons, SUN Media My thumb is up to McMaster University for the surprising hiring of Glen Grunwald as athletic director. We dont tend to think much about CIS sports, about who runs university sport across Canada, but in bringing in Grunwald, former general manager of the Toronto Raptors and New York Knicks, former US national champion at Indiana University, McMaster is turning its program over to someone who thinks larger than CIS thinks, who dreams bigger, who might supply original thought to university sport in Canada, which has had a tendency of tripping over itself year after year. Ill be honest, I dont know too many athletic directors in Canada, but I know Grunwald and IIm excited about what he might be able to accomplish at McMaster and by extension across this country. DeAndre Jordan Jersey. Michael Farber, Sports Illustrated My thumb is up to the hiring of Becky Hammon as an assistant coach by the best organization in professional sports, the San Antonio Spurs. If Gregg Popovich thinks she can coach, she can coach. Full stop. Like Hammon, Popovich is one of a kind. There is no other coach or executive who has earned the latitude to deviate from industry norms, which Popovich did by hiring the first full-time female assistant. This is not about a shattered glass ceiling. This is about Popovich thinking creatively, stretching boundaries. Now it is up to a mature team to take guidance from a former WNBA player in the way it would from any other spurs assistant. Dave Hodge, TSN If this isnt a ball sitting on a tee staring up at me, I dont know what an obvious thumb is. As the oldest in this group, I am obliged and very happy to say "thumbs up" to 64-year-old Tom Watson. Not to make Tiger Woods or his fans any more miserable, but lets consider again the scenario at Valhalla on Thursday. Woods was trying his best to win the PGA and extend his season so that Ryder Cup captain Watson could consider him a candidate for one of the last spots on the United States team. Based on their 36-hole scores, Watson had more reason to pick himself than to bow to Tigers past greatness - three over par for Watson, six over for Woods. Admittedly, Tiger had a problem with his back. Not until the course played considerably longer on Friday did Watson admit to a problem with his age. Such a problem that every other 64-year-old golfer in the world would love to have.
