Recap


White Sox 7, Tigers 5: Dayan Viciedo hit a two-run homer and singled in the tying and go-ahead runs in the sixth as host Chicago came from behind to take down Detroit.

Adam Dunn added a two-run homer - his 12th - and Alexei Ramirez scored a pair of runs for the White Sox.

John Danks started for Chicago but did not have much success, getting knocked around for three runs in the first and two more in the third as the Tigers jumped out to a quick lead. Prince Fielder had the big hit in the first with a two-run double.

Detroit rookie Drew Smyly had not allowed more than two earned runs in any of his first six starts but struggled against the White Sox, surrendering Dunn’s blast in the first and Viciedo’s two-run shot in the fifth that pulled Chicago to within 5-4.

Viciedo, who had gone 11 straight games without an RBI and entered the night with a .196 batting average, struck again in the sixth with a bases-loaded single off Luke Putkonen (0-2) that plated Alex Rios and A.J. Pierzynski.

Brent Morel added an RBI single and Zach Stewart (1-1) pitched three scoreless innings of relief to earn the win. Addison Reed worked the ninth for his third save.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Chicago left-hander Matt Thornton worked a scoreless inning of relief. He had allowed at least one run in four of his previous five appearances. … Miguel Cabrera and Fielder combined to go 6-for-10 with two runs scored and two RBIs. … Dunn surpassed his 2011 homer total.
