White Sox Vs. Tigers Final Score: Chicago Loses 6-4

Phil Humber dug the Chicago White Sox into a hole that they couldn't climb out of on Sunday afternoon, losing 6-4 to the Detroit Tigers after falling behind early. Humber lasted just three innings, allowing four different home runs before manager Robin Ventura decided to make a change.

The White Sox actually led 1-0 after Alex Rios hit an RBI single in the top of the first inning, but Humber quickly gave up that lead by allowing a two-run homer to Quintin Berry, the second hitter that he faced. In the end, Humber allowed six runs over three innings, striking out zero hitter while serving up four home runs.

The bullpen managed to tighten things up from there, but the Sox offense couldn't muster enough firepower to complete the comeback. Rios and Kevin Youkilis each hit home runs, but Tigers reliever Octavio Dotel came in and retired five straight hitters (including four on strikeouts) late in the game to put down the hammer.

It's the fifth consecutive loss for the White Sox, who now sit 1.5 games out of first place in the American League Central division.
