White Sox Rout Verlander, Tigers
DETROIT (AP) -- Gavin Floyd allowed six hits into the eighth inning, outpitching Justin Verlander and leading the Chicago White Sox to an 8-2 win over the Detroit Tigers on Friday night.

Carlos Quentin had three hits and three RBIs for the White Sox. Chicago scored four runs off Verlander in the third inning -- more than the Detroit ace had allowed in any start since May 24.

Verlander (12-5) threw six innings, his shortest outing since that same date.

Floyd (7-9) allowed two runs -- one earned -- and struck out five in 7 2-3 innings. He walked one.

Miguel Cabrera hit a two-run homer for Detroit in the fourth, and later added a single for his 1,500th career hit.
