|Jackson, White Sox Shut Down Tigers 5-0
|DETROIT (AP) -- Edwin Jackson pitched his first complete game since his no-hitter last year, and Juan Pierre added four hits to lead the Chicago White Sox to a 5-0 win over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday.
Jackson (6-7) allowed nine hits in his third career shutout, striking out two and walking two. It was his first complete game since June 25, 2010, when Jackson, then with the Arizona Diamondbacks, held Tampa Bay hitless in a 1-0 win.
Jackson threw 149 pitches in that game. He needed only 101 on Saturday.
Max Scherzer (10-5) allowed two runs and eight hits in eight innings. He struck out six.
Carlos Quentin hit a solo home run for Chicago.
