Tigers blow lead late in loss to White Sox, 7-4

Post  Admin on Thu Sep 08, 2016 3:28 am



Avisail Garcia hit a go-ahead single against his former team in a four-run 8th inning as the Chicago White Sox defeated Detroit, 7-4, to keep the Tigers a game behind Baltimore in the AL Wild Card standings.

The start was delayed 40 minutes for a threat of thunderstorms that never arrived on a steamy day with the heat index approaching 100 degrees in Chicago.  Justin Upton hit an early three-run homerun and Jose Iglesias had an RBI single in the 7th inning that put Detroit ahead, 4-3.

The Tigers will rest up on Thursday and return home to Comerica Park this weekend to take on Baltimore in a critical 3-game series with a wild card spot within reach.  The first game is set for this Friday night at 7 pm.
