Tigers cash in on Phil charity
UNDATED (AP) — DETROIT (AP) — Jhonny Peralta's grand slam capped an eight-run sixth inning for Detroit in a 12-4 win over Philadelphia. The Tigers put the big inning together with just two hits. The Phillies made three errors and walked three to aid the big outburst.
The Tigers overcame Miguel Cabrera's ejection. The reigning AL MVP was tossed while batting with the bases loaded in the third when he appears to say something to home plate umpire Chad Fairchild following a second called strike.

Pujols sidelined with partially torn ligament
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Angels slugger Albert Pujols (POO'-holz) has gone on the disabled list with a foot injury that could end his season. Manager Mike Scioscia says the star will be sidelined for "a significant amount of time."
Pujols has a partially torn plantar fascia in his left foot, an injury that has bothered him most of the season. He aggravated it while running out a hit in Friday's loss to Oakland.
Scioscia didn't rule out the possibility that the Angels' designated hitter could be sidelined for the rest of the year. Pujols is hitting .258 with 17 home runs and 64 RBIs.

Cabrera was batting with one out when he took two called strikes. He appeared to say something to Fairchild, although not in a demonstrative fashion. After Cabrera was tossed, Leyland came out of the dugout and was also thrown out. Leyland continued to argue for a while before leaving the field.
MLB-MARLINS-TINO MARTINEZ RESIGNS

BASEBALL-HALL OF FAME
Hall of Fame adds to roster
COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) — Former New York Yankees owner Jacob Ruppert and James "Deacon" White have been inducted posthumously into the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.
Ruppert purchased the Yankees prior to the 1915 season for $480,000, and then proceeded to transform what had been a perennial also-ran into a powerhouse. He snared Babe Ruth in a 1919 trade with the Boston Red Sox, a deal that changed the dynamics of the sport.
Four years later, Ruppert had Yankee Stadium constructed and "The House That Ruth Built" became baseball's mecca. Ruppert hired general manager Ed Barrow from the Red Sox in 1921, and together they won 10 AL pennants and seven World Series in 18 seasons.
White was a barehanded catcher and the first batter in the first professional game in May 1871. White played for six teams and had a .312 batting average in a 20-year career.

Hill suspended for pot
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The stress of coping with life led Will Hill to use marijuana, the New York Giants safety says in his first comments after being hit by the NFL with his second four-game suspension.
Speaking frankly before practicing at training camp, Hill said that the suspension he received last week for using marijuana was for failing a drug test last season.
The league didn't immediately impose a penalty because Hill tried to fight it. He was also suspended for four games early last season for using a performance-enhancing drug, which he and the team said was Adderall.
