White Sox Lose But Keep Half Game Lead On Red Sox For The Wild Card

Tigers end White Sox winning streak

DETROIT (AP) – Justin Verlander allowed five hits over seven

innings and the Detroit Tigers ended the Chicago White Sox's

seven-game winning streak with a 9-1 rout Tuesday night.

Three players – White Sox starter Freddy Garcia (back), Tigers

first baseman Miguel Cabrera (shoulder) and White Sox designated

hitter Manny Ramirez (hand) – all left the game with injuries,

while Chicago's Gordon Beckham (hand) was a late scratch from the

lineup. Home plate umpire Angel Campos needed attention after being

hit by a foul tip in the eighth inning, but stayed in the game.

Verlander (15-8) allowed one run and walked one while striking

out seven.
