Recap


White Sox 5, Tigers 4: Dewayne Wise had three hits and two RBIs as host Chicago moved three games ahead of Detroit atop the American League Central Division.

The White Sox received five scoreless innings from their bullpen in a makeup of Thursday's rainout to extend their winning streak to four and beat the Tigers for only the second time in the past 11 meetings.

Chicago erased a 3-0 deficit with three runs in the fourth inning and went ahead with two more in the fifth when Alex Rios (two hits) forced an errant throw by Tigers second baseman Omar Infante on a potential double play ball to plate the tying and go-ahead runs.

Nate Jones (8-0) pitched 2 2/3 scoreless innings of one-hit ball for the win, although he surrendered an RBI single that was charged to starter Jose Quintana. Four relievers followed Jones with Addison Reed getting the final out for his 27th save.

Delmon Young had a pair of hits and three RBIs for Detroit, which finished 12-6 against Chicago this year. Tigers right-hander Doug Fister (9-9) was charged with five runs (four earned) on eight hits in four-plus innings and lost for only the third time in his last 11 decisions.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Tigers 3B Miguel Cabrera was named the AL Player of the Week. It is the sixth time he's won the award with Detroit, trailing only Kirk Gibson (seven) for the most in franchise history. ... Chicago bungled away a run in the eighth inning when Wise was thrown out at third base a split second before Gordon Beckham crossed home plate on what would have been a sacrifice fly by Adam Dunn. ... Jhonny Peralta grounded into a double play in the second inning, giving the Tigers a major league-leading 142 this year.
