Tigers drop third straight, fall at Chicago 5-1 as Scherzer suffers 2nd loss

CHICAGO, IL (WTVB) - The Tigers’ lead atop the American League Central is shrinking as Detroit dropped its third in-a-row last night and fifth in six games with a 5-to-1 loss to the White Sox in Chicago. Second place Cleveland is now trailing the Tigers by just four-and-a-half games after the Indians beat the Royals. Max Scherzer failed for the third straight time in his bid for a 20th win after allowing five runs in four innings. It was his shortest outing of the year as he fell to 19-and-3.

Detroit also played almost all of the game without Miguel Cabrera and manager Jim Leyland. They were each ejected in the first inning by the home plate umpire for arguing a check swing call on a pitch that struck Cabrera in the right knee. The Tigers were held to only four hits on the night as Chris Sale struck out eight over eight innings while allowing a solo home run by Victor Martinez. Rick Porcello gets the start tonight for Detroit against the White Sox.

The Chicago Cubs won last night, beating the Reds 2-to-0 in Cincinnati.
