CHICAGO -- The White Sox five-game losing streak came to an end Tuesday night at U.S. Cellular Field by virtue of a 5-2 victory over the Tigers. The South Siders improved to 7-3 at home, to go with their 2-11 road record.
Jeff Samardzija (2-2) earned the victory, allowing two runs on seven hits over seven innings, while striking out seven and walking one. Samardzija's night came to an end with runners on first and second in the seventh, when he took Ian Kinsler's line drive up the middle off his right arm and still recovered to nail him at first. Zach Duke and David Robertson completed the victory.
