The Tigers sit a half-game behind the White Sox, for 1st-place, in the AL Central.
Detroit beat Chicago 4-2 on Friday night.
Justin Verlander pitched 8 innings, allowed 4 hits, 2 runs, 2 walks and notched
6 Ks.
Jake Peavy had a 2-0 Chicago lead but got burnt for 5 hits and 3 runs in the 3rd inning.
Peavy served-up a lead-off double to Jhonny Peralta. Ramon Santiago singled. Austin Jackson hit into a double play. Peavy hit Quintin Berry with a pitch.
Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder hit RBI singles. Delmon Young hit an RBI double. It was 3-2 Tigers. That's all Verlander would need.

Detroit will have their hands full tonight - Chris Sale (11-2, 2.11 ERA) is on the hill for the White Sox vs Rick Porcello.

Guys! Everyone needs to pay attention to what's happening in Oakland.
Athletics' outfielder Josh Reddick has become the master of delivering a Gatorade shower & pie in the face!
That's because the A's lead the majors with 10 walk-off wins!
They did it again, last night, beating the Yankees 3-2!!
Brandon Moss hit an RBI single to drive in Yoenis Cespedes for the win.
Oakland has won the first two in a 4-game series against New York.
The A's sit a half-game out of a wild-card spot in the American League.
Last night, Oakland rookie pitcher Tommy Milone went 7 shutout innings, giving-up 6 hits and striking out 10 Yankees hitters.

Cliff Pennington was placed on the disabled list with left elbow tendinitis and Eric Sogard was brought up from Triple-A Sacramento to fill Pennington's roster spot.
The HBWHOF is a fan of Eric's wife - Kaycee Sogard.
