Sox Take Two From Tigers

The White Sox trailed 7-1 in the night game before getting two runs in the sixth. They closed to 7-to-6 when Jim Thome hit a three-run homer off Chad Durbin in the seventh.

Rob Mackowiak opened the eighth with a bad-hop double past first baseman Sean Casey, moved to third on a grounder and scored the tying run on a single by Scott Podsednik.

Podsednik stole second. After a walk, Pierzynski hit a liner that bounced right in front of Guillen. Had Guillen controlled the ball, he might have started a double play.

Matt Thornton is 3-and-3 with the win.

Detroit's lead in the A-L Central is down to a game and a-half over Cleveland.
