The White Sox built a 6-0 lead in the first five innings, and with Jake Peavy on the mound, the team appeared to be in very good shape. But things fell apart for Peavy in the sixth inning, as the Tigers put up eight runs in the frame thanks to three home runs. They added two more in the seventh.

Chicago got two runs in the ninth on a bases-loaded double by Alexei Ramirez. That set up an opportunity for Dayan Viciedo with two runners in scoring position, and he came mere feet from hitting the ball over the fence in right field.

A.J. Pierzynski and Paul Konerko were a combined 8-9 at the plate for Chicago.

White Sox Activate Jesse Crain From 15-day DL, Designate Eric Stults For Assignment

Relief pitcher Jesse Crain was reinstated from the 15-day disabled list by the Chicago White Sox prior to Tuesday's game against the Detroit Tigers, and 32-year-old LHP Eric Stults was designated for assignment in a companion move. Crain had been on a rehab assignment in Triple-A Charlotte after suffering a strained left oblique earlier in the season. He is back to help shore up a White Sox bullpen that has struggled at times this year and continues to get uneven performances from Matt Thornton.

Crain has pitched in 7.0 innings so far this season, giving up five hits and two earned runs (2.57 ERA) while striking out 10 batters and walking just one. In his limited duty, Crain owns the best strikeouts per nine innings mark (12.86) on the entire staff.

Tigers Vs. White Sox Final Score: Chicago Completes Comeback For 7-5 Victory

The Chicago White Sox were down 5-2 headed into the bottom of the fifth inning against the Detroit Tigers on Monday night, but a couple big swings by left fielder Dayan Viciedo and a stellar effort from the bullpen helped Chicago come back to grab a 7-5 victory at U.S. Cellular Field.

Jesse Crain Injury: White Sox Expected To Activate Reliever After Monday's Game, According To Report

According to CSN Chicago's Paul Latour, the White Sox are expected to activate reliever Jesse Crain following Monday night's game against Detroit. Crain has been recovering from an oblique injury.

The Sox are expected to activate him following tonight’s series opener against Detroit at U.S. Cellular Field. They’ll need to make a corresponding roster move to do that.

Fresh from a two-appearance rehabilitation assignment with Triple-A Charlotte, Crain said the strained left oblique feels good.

“Those two outings down there showed me that I was over it, and couldn’t feel it at all,” Crain said.
