Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - Jhonny Peralta crushed a grand slam to cap an eight-run sixth inning that propelled the Detroit Tigers to a 12-4 win and a three-game interleague sweep of the spiraling Philadelphia Phillies at Comerica Park.

The AL Central-leading Tigers plated 12 unanswered runs without slugger Miguel Cabrera, who was ejected along with manager Jim Leyland in the third inning.

Peralta's home run was just one of two hits in an absolute ugly frame for Philadelphia during which the club committed three errors. After opening this nine-game road trip with a win against the New York Mets, the Phillies dropped eight in a row to fall a season-worst seven games under .500 (49-56).
