Tigers fall short in ten innings to the White Sox

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) -- Carlos Sanchez hit a three-run triple off Joba Chamberlain in the 10th inning Thursday, and the Chicago White Sox held on to beat the Detroit Tigers 8-7.

With the score 5-all, Chamberlain (0-2) walked Melky Cabrera with one out, hit Avisail Garcia with a pitch and then allowed pinch-hitter J.B. Shuck's two-out infield single to shortstop.

Sanchez tripled past first baseman Miguel Cabrera and all the way to the right-field wall on a 1-2 pitch, putting Chicago ahead 8-5.

David Robertson gave up a two-run single to Bryan Holaday with one out in the bottom half, then retired Ian Kinsler on a flyout and, with runners on first and second, intentionally walked Miguel Cabrera to load the bases.

Josh Wilson took a ball, then swung and missed at three straight pitches, giving Robertson his 15th save in 19 chances.

Zach Duke (3-2) pitched a scoreless inning for the win, and Adam Eaton homered for Chicago.
