DETROIT (AP) --- Miguel Cabrera hit a two-run homer, Justin Verlander pitched
seven solid innings and the Detroit Tigers held on for an 8-6 victory over the
Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night.
Cabrera was 4 for 23 on this homestand before going 3 for 5 on Tuesday ---
including a homer and a double off Chicago's Charlie Leesman (0-1), who was
called up from the minors to start in place of an injured Chris Sale.
Verlander (3-1) had little to worry about after allowing a first-inning homer
to Jose Abreu. He allowed two runs and eight hits, striking out seven and
Chicago's Dayan Viciedo had a career-high four hits, and Adam Dunn hit a
two-run homer in the ninth to pull the White Sox within two. Joba Chamberlain
got the final out for his first save, retiring Alexei Ramirez on a liner to
left with one on.
