|Tigers Lose to White Sox Again; Tied with Minnesota in AL Central
|DETROIT (AP) -- The AL Central has come down to the final day.
The Detroit Tigers dropped into a first-place tie with Minnesota, looking listless Saturday night in a 5-1 loss to Freddy Garcia and the Chicago White Sox.
Tigers manager Jim Leyland made two pitching changes in the second inning, trying to find a way to end his team's slump. Instead, Detroit lost for the fifth time in seven games.
Earlier in the day, the Twins beat Kansas City 5-4, leaving them even with the Tigers at 85-76. Detroit will start ace Justin Verlander on Sunday.
If the Tigers and Twins are still tied after Sunday, there will be a one-game playoff Tuesday at the Metrodome.
