Cabrera's Homer Lifts Tigers Over White Sox
CHICAGO (AP) -- Miguel Cabrera hit a tiebreaking two-run homer with two out in the ninth inning, sending Justin Verlander and the Detroit Tigers to a 4-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Saturday night.

Austin Jackson opened the ninth with a leadoff triple against Jesse Crain (2-2), who nearly wriggled out of the jam. Don Kelly popped out and Brennan Boesch struck out before Cabrera hit a 1-2 pitch over the right-field fence to put the Tigers ahead 4-2.

Jose Valverde retired the White Sox in the bottom half for his 15th save in 15 chances. Alex Rios led off with a walk, but Valverde set down the next three batters to end the game.

Detroit has won four of five.
