DETROIT -

Jhonny Peralta's grand slam capped an eight-run sixth inning for Detroit, and the Tigers overcame Miguel Cabrera's ejection in a 12-4 win over the collapsing Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday.
 
   Cabrera was tossed while batting with the bases loaded in the third and manager Jim Leyland was ejected, too. Detroit still got plenty of additional chances against a Philadelphia team that stumbled to its eighth straight loss.
 
   In the sixth, the Tigers scored eight runs on only two hits. The Phillies made three errors and walked three batters in the inning.
 
   Rick Porcello (8-6) allowed three runs and seven hits in six innings to win his fourth straight start.
 
   Reliever Jake Diekman (0-1) took the loss, but he was hardly the only culprit for Philadelphia.
