Fister, Jackson, Cabrera lead Tigers

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (AP) -

Doug Fister pitched seven innings of two-hit ball, Austin Jackson hit a tying two-run homer and Miguel Cabrera delivered a go-ahead solo shot Tuesday night to lead the Detroit Tigers past the White Sox 5-3, reducing Chicago's AL Central lead to two games.

The division's top two teams have now split the first two of a four-game series, their last head-to-head matchup this season.

The Tigers ended a four-game losing streak and have beaten the White Sox eight times in the last nine meetings.

Jackson's 14th homer followed a single by Omar Infante in the top of the fifth off Jake Peavy.

One batter later, Cabrera hit his 36th of the season to put the Tigers up 3-2.

The only two hits Fister (9-8) gave up were solo homers to Dewayne Wise in the first and Gordon Beckham in the third that gave the White Sox a 2-0 lead.
