White Sox rally from 7 down for 10-9 victory over Tigers
CHICAGO (AP) Adam Eaton hit a game-ending single in the 12th inning and the Chicago White Sox rallied from seven runs down for a wild 10-9 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Monday night.
J.B. Shuck led off the 12th with a double down the first-base line and advanced to third on Tim Anderson's sacrifice. With the infield playing in, Eaton then bounced a grounder up the middle against Anibal Sanchez (3-7), lifting Chicago to an unlikely victory.
Zach Duke (1-0) pitched a scoreless inning for the win.
The White Sox trailed 7-0 in the third, hurt by another shaky start from James Shields. They faced a 9-7 deficit in the ninth before they got to Francisco Rodriguez for two runs with two outs, snapping a string of 19 straight successful save opportunities for the veteran closer.
