DETROIT (AP) - 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.

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

Conor Gillaspie and Gordon Beckham homered for Chicago.
