White Sox Vs. Tigers Final Score: Chicago Drops 2nd Straight To Detroit, 5-1

The White Sox dropped another game to the Tigers on Saturday night, losing 5-1 to the team from Detroit.

Detroit is now two games behind Chicago for the division lead, so Sunday's rubber match will be huge for both teams.

The Tigers scored runs in the third, fifth, seventh and eight innings. Brennan Boesch hit an RBI triple in the third to get the Tigers on the board, then Miguel Cabrera plated Boesch with an RBI single to center field. Delmon Young added to Detroit's run total with a solo home run in the seventh inning after having scored a run in the fifth on right fielder Avisail Garcia's base hit.

The White Sox rallied in the ninth inning Orlando Hudson's RBI triple, but it was too little, too late for the White Sox.
