Tigers 6, White Sox 4: Unearned runs the difference

Brian Kersey

Sox threaten late, ultimately unable to overcome unearned runs.

Conor Gillaspie made a great stop immediately followed by a bad throw with two outs in the sixth, allowing two unearned runs to score. The White Sox lost by two. Same old stuff, really.

Gordon Beckham went 3-for-4, and his one out was a sharply hit fly ball to right center. He continues to swing a hot bat.

Miguel Cabrera went 1-for-5, but the one left the yard and for a three-run homer. He barely moved in the field or on the basepaths all afternoon.

The White Sox got to Rick Porcello to the tune of three runs in the first inning, but he scattered and stranded the White Sox for the rest of his day. He struck out four and walked one, surrendering 11 hits. All of them were singles.

In fact, all of the Sox's 14 hits were singles. They also drew five walks, but they could only score three measly runs. So that was weird.

John Danks threw 7⅓ innings via 107 pitches. He allowed four earned (plus the two unearned runs), taking the loss and running his record to 2-10. He struck out three and walkedone.

With the Sox loss and a Miami Marlins win, the two teams are tied for the second pick in next year's draft with identical records of 46-73.
