The Sox struck quickly against Verlander, who was 1-1 with a 5.49 ERA in three starts against the South Siders this year.

In the first inning, the White Sox had a pair of hits and Verlander walked two batters.

But the Sox managed to score just 1 run, coming on Adam Dunn's sacrifice fly.

After that, it was all Verlander (12-11) and all Detroit, as the Tigers rolled to a 7-1 win.

Detroit took a 2-1 lead in the third inning when Ian Kinsler doubled in Ezequiel Carrera, advanced to third base on the throw home and scored on Torii Hunter's sacrifice fly.

The Tigers broke the game open with 5 runs in the fourth against White Sox starter Scott Carroll (5-9), but 4 were unearned thanks to two errors by first baseman Jose Abreu.

Verlander went 7 innings and allowed 1 run on 9 hits while striking out 8. Carroll allowed 7 runs (3 earned) on 10 hits in 5 innings.

The Sox and Tigers play a day/night doubleheader Saturday, with Game 1 starting at 12:10 p.m. and Game 2 starting at 6:10 p.m.

Before Game 2, the White Sox are going to honor the United States champion Jackie Robinson West All-Star Little League team.
