Tigers 5, White Sox 3
John Danks reacts after giving up a home run in the fifth inning. (AP)
After being stifled for seven frames, the Sox broke through in the eighth, with Ramon Castro delivering an RBI double and Brent Lillibridge following with a two-run single. But Carlos Quentin was robbed in center, and Chicago couldn't pick up John Danks, who eclipsed 200 innings, but allowed four runs.
