Tigers rally, fend off White Sox late

Share This Story

   
 

CHICAGO (AP)

Miguel Cabrera, Ryan Raburn and Austin Jackson homered during an eight-run rally in the sixth inning Tuesday and the Detroit Tigers beat the Chicago White Sox 10-8.

GREAT AMERICAN RACE

The Junior Circuit is poised for epic AL pennant chases this season.

The Tigers hung on in the ninth despite an injury to closer Jose Valverde. It was 10-6 when Paul Konerko singled and A.J. Pierzynski doubled with two outs for his fifth hit.

Valverde went to a 3-1 count on Alex Rios before a trainer and manager Jim Leyland went to the mound. Valverde left the game and the nature of his injury was not immediately known.

Octavo Dotel issued a fourth ball to Rios and Alexei Ramirez's two-run double made it 10-8. But Dotel got Dayan Viciedo to fly out to the right-field fence for his first save in two chances.

Chicago starter Jake Peavy sailed into the sixth with a 6-0 lead before Cabrera hit a two-run homer to the back of the bleachers in left field.

A double by Prince Fielder, who had three hits, and a hit batter set up Raburn's first homer of the season. After Peavy walked Jhonny Peralta, reliever Will Ohman (0-2) hit pinch-hitter Delmon Young and Jackson followed a three-run homer.

Raburn and Peralta added RBI singles off Nate Jones in the seventh.

Pierzynski went 5 for 5 and drove in three runs. Paul Konerko homered for Chicago.

OUCH!

Alejandro De Aza singled in the bottom of the first and walks to Gordon Beckham and Konerko loaded the bases. Pierzynski hit an RBI single and another run scored on the play when left fielder Don Kelly fumbled the ball for an error.

Konerko hit his seventh homer and Viciedo added an RBI single in the third for a 4-0 lead.

Detroit starter Max Scherzer labored with 99 pitches in his four-plus innings, allowing eight hits and five earned runs. After singles by Adam Dunn and Konerko in the fifth, Scherzer was relieved by Collin Balester (2-0), who threw a wild pitch and then gave up a two-run single to Pierzynski.

NOTES: Raburn has hit 13 of his 54 career homers against the White Sox. ... Former major league pitcher Jim Abbott, who played with the White Sox and was a teammate of Robin Ventura's, threw out the first pitch to the first-year Chicago manager. ... Ventura said DH Adam Dunn will likely play in left field all three games against the Cubs at Wrigley Field this weekend. Before the two city rivals play, the White Sox fly to California for a brief two-game series against the Angels.
