CHICAGO (1660 THE FAN) – The Detroit Tigers looked to gain much-needed ground on the Chicago White Sox on Monday in a make-up game at U.S. Cellular Field.
Detroit took an early lead against the White Sox, but a fifth-inning error from Omar Infante proved to be the difference as the Tigers fell 5-4.
Doug Fister took the mound for the Tigers and had a relatively disappointing start, giving up five runs on eight hits in four innings. Fister also had two strike outs to go with two walks.
Chicago's Jose Quintana had a start similar to Fister's, giving up four runs on seven hits in four innings of work.
Delmon Young had a big game for Detroit, driving in three RBI and keeping the Tigers within striking distance throughout.
The Tigers had a 4-3 lead going into the fifth inning before Infante surrendered a throwing error on a ground ball that scored two runners, giving the White Sox the lead and eventually the win.
The loss moves Detroit to three games back in the Central with no games left against Chicago in the regular season.
Detroit heads to Comerica Park Tuesday night to start a three-game set against the Oakland Athletics. Max Scherzer will be looking for his seventeenth win against the American League Wildcard leaders. Dan Dickerson and Jim Price will have the call on 590 WKZO starting at 6:40 p.m.
