NEW YORK, Aug. 25 (UPI) -- Andy Dirks and Miguel Cabrera led an 18-hit assault Sunday that carried the Detroit Tigers to an 11-3 interleague win and series sweep of the New York Mets.

Dirks homered and drove in three runs while Cabrera went 3-for-4, raising his major league-best batting average to .360, and smacked his 42nd home run of the year as the American League Central-leading Tigers won all three games of a series at Citi Field.

Ramon Santiago went 3-for-5 with an RBI while Austin Jackson, Victor Martinez and Omar Infante each contributed two hits with a run batted in for Detroit, which scored seven times in the ninth inning to turn the game into a rout.

Rick Porcello (10-7) allowed three runs on four hits over seven innings to record the decision, walking three and striking out four.

Mets starter Dillon Gee (9-9), was touched for four runs on 10 hits in a six-inning performance.

Travis d'Arnaud socked his first career homer for the Mets.
