Beckham, Teahen Lead White Sox Past Tigers
CHICAGO (AP) -- Gordon Beckham hit a three-run homer and Mark Teahen, fresh off the disabled list, added a two-run shot, helping the Chicago White Sox beat the slumping Detroit Tigers 8-4 on Friday night.

After losing five of seven to fall out of the AL Central lead, the White Sox received a timely visit from their favorite opponent. They are 7-2 against the Tigers this season and 65-36 against them since the start of 2005.

Mark Buehrle (11-9) allowed three runs and five hits in 6 1-3 innings for Chicago (65-51), which is 41-18 since June 9 -- a surge that began with a 15-3 victory over the Tigers. Buehrle has won his last five decisions against Detroit.

Ryan Raburn and Brandon Inge homered for the Tigers (55-60).
