Detroit, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Adam Eaton finished 3-for-5 with two RBI and
two runs scored, as the Chicago White Sox downed the Detroit Tigers, 7-4, in
Thursday's rubber match of a three-game series.
Jose Abreu doubled twice among his three hits, Moises Sierra added four hits
and drove in a run, while Alexei Ramirez, Gordon Beckham and Tyler Flowers
contributed an RBI each for the White Sox, who took the set and have won five
of their last seven.
Paul Konerko was 2-for-4 with two runs scored and one driven in for Chicago,
while Ronald Belisario (4-7) allowed one hit over 1 2/3 scoreless relief
innings. John Danks worked the first five, giving up four runs on seven hits
with four walks.
Torii Hunter and J.D. Martinez hit back-to-back homers for the Tigers, who
slid to their fifth loss in their last six.
Joakim Soria (1-4) took the loss, charged with the go-ahead run over his one
relief frame. Drew Smyly gave up 11 hits and four runs over his five-inning
stint, then was reportedly swapped to Rays in a three-team deal which has
apparently seen David Price traded from Tampa Bay to Detroit.
