Tigers End White Sox Winning Streak
DETROIT (AP) -- Justin Verlander allowed five hits over seven innings and the Detroit Tigers ended the Chicago White Sox's seven-game winning streak with a 9-1 rout Tuesday night.

Three players -- White Sox starter Freddy Garcia (back), Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera (shoulder) and White Sox designated hitter Manny Ramirez (hand) -- all left the game with injuries, while Chicago's Gordon Beckham (hand) was a late scratch from the lineup. Home plate umpire Angel Campos needed attention after being hit by a foul tip in the eighth inning, but stayed in the game.

Verlander (15-8) allowed one run and walked one while striking out seven.
