CHICAGO, IL (WKZO) -- The Tigers have had a rough couple days. First, blowing a series sweep of Boston on Sunday (in the final meeting of the teams in the season's first half) and then starting off a series at the White Sox with a 6-5 loss.
Detroit got off to a sluggish beginning, remaining scoreless til the middle of the 4th, while Chicago got a couple runs past Rick Porcello. The team's offense did perk up, with home runs from Miguel Cabrera, Eugenio Suarez and Victor Martinez, but Porcello couldn't keep pace, allowing three more runs before Corey Knebel (and later Ian Krol and Evan Reed) stepped in to relieve him.
Two of those runs came from Jose Abreu's home run in the 5th. The first baseman also got a homer off Drew Smyly's pitch in the last game Detroit lost to the White Sox, back in April.
The Tigers still have hope of a series win, and they play game two against Chicago tomorrow night at 7:45 PM on AM 590 WKZO.
