      Prince Fielder homered, Rick Porcello pitched six solid innings and the Detroit Tigers bounced back Wednesday night with an 8-5 victory over the Chicago White Sox.


      Detroit allowed 23 hits in an 11-4 loss to the White Sox on Tuesday, but it was the Tigers who did the slugging early on in this game. Fielder lined a two-run shot to right field in the first inning for his 16th homer of the year.


      Alex Avila's two-run single in the third put Detroit ahead 5-1.


      Conor Gillaspie and Gordon Beckham homered for Chicago.


      Porcello (6-6) allowed three runs and seven hits. Joaquin Benoit pitched the ninth for his eighth save in eight chances.


      Dylan Axelrod (3-6) allowed seven runs and 11 hits in 5 2-3 innings.
