Moises Sierra had four hits, and Jose Abreu and Adam Eaton added three apiece to lift the White Sox to a 7-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Thursday.

The game quickly became a secondary concern in the Motor City when the Tigers acquired star left-hander David Price from Tampa Bay in a three-team deal.

Joakim Soria (1-4) -- another pitcher Detroit recently traded for -- hit Paul Konerko with the bases loaded in the seventh to give the White Sox a 5-4 lead.

Abreu extended his hitting streak to 20 games.

Ronald Belisario (4-7) got the win in relief, and Jake Petricka pitched the ninth for his sixth save.

John Danks allowed four runs and seven hits in five innings. There had been speculation he might be dealt before the deadline, but instead it was Detroit's Thursday starter -- Drew Smyly -- who ended up in the trade for Price.

Smyly pitched five innings and allowed four runs on 11 hits. He was at 95 pitches when he was taken out -- the move didn't appear to be related to the trade.

But Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson had to be pulled with one out in the top of the seventh, jogging off the field with the trade deadline looming. Jackson went from Detroit to Seattle in the deal that brought Price to the Tigers.

Detroit's Torii Hunter and J.D. Martinez hit back-to-back homers in the third.

Abreu doubled twice off Smyly to extend his hitting streak. The Chicago slugger has hit safely in 38 of his last 39 games.

TRAINER'S ROOM

White Sox: Outfielder Avisail Garcia (shoulder) and reliever Matt Lindstrom (ankle) are both starting rehab assignments Friday at Triple-A Charlotte.

Tigers: Outfielder Andy Dirks, who has missed the whole season so far because of back problems that required surgery, is set to begin a rehab stint Friday with Class A West Michigan.

ON DECK

White Sox: Chicago returns home to face Minnesota on Friday night. Ace left-hander Chris Sale (10-1) takes the mound for the White Sox against Logan Darnell (9-6) of the Twins.
