Detroit Tigers beat White Sox 5-3, 30 games under .500

“Detroit Tigers” almost avoided the fifth inning, not allowing more than one run.

Instead, the Chicago White Sox took the lead.

A groundout from Andrew Vaughn to shortstop Javier Baez should have been an inning-ending double play, but first baseman Cody Clemens couldn’t hold on to a relay throw from second baseman Willie Castro.

Eloy Jimenez scored on the play.

“I think he got stretched a little early,” manager AJ Hinch said. “The ball caught him and it never hit the net.”
