Tigers 9, White Sox 3

DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – A sparse and damp crowd enjoyed the pounding Detroit gave Chicago as the Tigers beat the White Sox 9-3 on Friday night.

As heard on 97.1 The Ticket the Tigers posted the first win in the weekend series against the Chicago White Sox.

Justin Verlander pitched seven impressive innings through a misty rain, earning his second win (2-2) allowing four hits, including two home runs by Carlos Quentin and another by Paul Konerko.

He finished with eight strikeouts – including the 1,000th of his career – and no walks.

Raburn hit a two-run homer for the Tigers, who have won seven straight over the White Sox.

Chicago has lost eight of its past nine overall. Mark Buehrle (1-2) went 5 2-3 innings, allowing six runs and eight hits. He struck out five and walked two.
