Tigers Vs. White Sox Final: White Sox Win Huge Game Over Tigers

The Chicago White Sox topped the Detroit Tigers, 5-4, in Monday’s make-up game, increasing the White Sox's lead in the AL Central to three games over the Tigers. The game was a make-up for the Sept. 13 series finale between the two teams. With the win, the White Sox earned a split in the final series between the clubs.

The Tigers got out to the early lead with a three-run third, but the White Sox were able to answer back in the bottom of the fourth, thanks in large part to Doug Fister hitting Gordon Beckham with the bases loaded and two outs to force in a run. A DeWayne Wise single on the next at-bat would tie the game.

The Tigers took the lead in the fifth inning, but an Omar Infante error in the bottom of the fifth gave the White Sox the advantage, and their bullpen closed it out by allowing no runs for the rest of the game. Nate Jones earned the win for Chicago, to improve to 8-0 on the season, while Addison Reed recorded his 27th save. Doug Fister (9-9) took the loss for the Tigers.

The White Sox will travel to Kansas City to take on the Royals in a three-game series starting on Tuesday.
