Justin Verlander out-dueled Chris Sale on Sunday night and the Detroit Tigers defeated the Chicago White Sox 4-2, completing a three-game sweep in the process. The win also moved the Tigers into a tie for first place in the AL Central.
The White Sox got on the board first thanks to Alejandro De Aza's solo home run to start the game, but Verlander settled into his usual groove from there and took control of the game. He finished with 11 strikeouts.
Sale kept Detroit's offense quiet until the fifth inning, when Brennan Boesch tied things up with a solo shot of his own. Delmon Young gave the Tigers the lead and the win with a three-run home run in the sixth.
The White Sox return home for a series against the Twins beginning on Monday.
