CHICAGO (AP) — Anibal Sanchez struck out 10 in a terrific performance, helping the Detroit Tigers top the Chicago White Sox 1-0 on Wednesday night.

Sanchez (14-7) allowed five hits and walked four in 7 1-3 innings while lowering his AL-best ERA to 2.50. Joaquin Benoit got three outs for his 18th save in 18 opportunities, completing a five-hitter for Detroit’s 11th shutout of the season.

Omar Infante drove in the game’s only run with a two-out single against Matt Lindstrom (2-4) in the eighth inning.

White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana pitched seven innings of five-hit ball.
