Alex Rios Homers For Sox, But Johnny Damon's Big Day Gives Win To Tigers

Detroit, MI (Sports Network) – Johnny Damon went 4-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored, and Rick Porcello threw eight strong frames as the Tigers handed the White Sox a third straight loss, 6-3, to close out a four-game series.

Ryan Raburn and Jhonny Peralta each drove in a pair and Will Rhymes had three hits and two runs scored for Detroit, which won the final three games in the set to put Chicago further back in the American League Central race.

The White Sox, despite a relatively successful 7-3 road trip, now trail the idle Minnesota Twins by six games heading into a nine-game homestand. Alex Rios hit a two-run homer, his 21st, for the White Sox.

Porcello (9-11) won a fourth straight start, scattering four hits and three runs while striking out three and walking none in the win.
