Los Angeles’ Albert Pujols doubled, singled, scored a run and drove one in — all in an eight-run fifth inning — as the Angels routed the Tigers 14-8 in Detroit, Michigan.

Philadelphia’s Domonic Brown hit his 20th home run of the season and tied a career high with four RBIs as the Phillies won 6-2 over San Diego, while at Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles’ Matt Kemp made a marvelous catch for the final out to preserve the Dodgers’ 6-5 win over the slumping San Francisco Giants.

In Tuesday’s other games, Milwaukee’s Rickie Weeks homered twice and drove in four runs to power the Brewers past the Cubs 9-3, Chicago’s Alexei Ramirez singled in the winning run in the bottom of the ninth to deliver the White Sox a 5-4 win over the New York Mets and Miami’s Marcell Ozuna drove in two runs as Derek Dietrich homered to help Miami beat Minnesota 4-2.
