|Dunn Homer Gives White Sox Win Over Tigers
|DETROIT (AP) -- Adam Dunn hit a two-run homer deep into the right-field seats off Jose Valverde in the ninth inning and the Chicago White Sox turned the tables on Detroit, beating the Tigers 3-2 Saturday.
Detroit defeated Chicago 5-4 on Friday night when Jhonny Peralta hit a two-run shot with one out in the ninth. There was also one out when Dunn hit his 422-foot drive off Valverde (2-1).
Nate Jones (1-0) got the win and Addison Reed came on to strike out Austin Jackson with runners on second and third for the final out. It was Reed's first career save.
Detroit's Delmon Young went hitless in his first game back from a seven-day suspension following his April 27 arrest in New York.
