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.
