|Bonderman Helps Tigers Beat White Sox
|DETROIT (AP) -- Jeremy Bonderman pitched eight strong innings and the Detroit Tigers beat the sloppy Chicago White Sox 5-1 on Wednesday.
Chicago, trying to catch Minnesota in the AL Central, entered Tuesday's game with a seven-game winning streak, but has been outscored 14-2 by the Tigers over the last two nights, including seven unearned runs. The four-game series ends with a day game on Thursday.
Bonderman (8-9) picked up where Justin Verlander left off on Tuesday, allowing one run and three hits. The right-hander struck out eight and walked one.
John Danks (13-10) pitched six innings for the White Sox, yielding five runs, two earned, and eight hits.
