DETROIT — Alex Rios’ hitting prowess Tuesday night impressed teammate Adam Dunn.

Rios tied an American League mark with six hits as the White Sox beat Detroit, 11-4.

“That takes people like me, two, maybe three weeks, to get six,” said Dunn, who hit a go-ahead, two-run homer off Justin Verlander in the eighth.

Rios became the 32nd AL player with six hits in a nine-inning game.

“It’s been the most fun we’ve had in a quite a while,” Rios said.

Dying fan sees no-hitter

CINCINNATI — A dying Cincinnati Reds fan made one last trip to a game, with an assist by Reds first baseman Joey Votto.

Jeffrey Crews was at Great American Ballpark last week to see Homer Bailey pitch a no-hitter against San Francisco. Two days later, Crews, 62, died at home of brain cancer.

Votto arranged field-level seats and field passes for batting practice for Crews’ family.

Notes

• Padres President and CEO Tom Garfinkel resigned.

• AL captain Robinson Cano of the Yankees added Oakland’s Yoenis Cespedes to his team for Monday’s Home Run Derby. Baltimore’s Chris Davis and Detroit’s Prince Fielder were previously named. NL captain David Wright of the Mets selected Washington’s Bryce Harper and Colorado’s Carlos Gonzalez and Michael Cuddyer.

Alex Rodriguez is expected to meet Friday with MLB representatives in the ongoing investigation into Biogenesis, the now-shuttered Miami anti-aging clinic where it is alleged the Yankees third baseman and other players received performance-enhancing drugs.
