      Cabrera homers, Tigers beat White Sox 8-6

      Tiger slugger awakens in 8-6 win over White Sox.


      Miguel Cabrera hit a two-run homer, Justin Verlander pitched seven solid innings and the Detroit Tigers held on for an 8-6 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night.


      Cabrera was 4 for 23 on this homestand before going 3 for 5 on Tuesday - including a homer and a double off Chicago's Charlie Leesman (0-1), who was called up from the minors to start in place of an injured Chris Sale.


      Verlander (3-1) had little to worry about after allowing a first-inning homer to Jose Abreu. He allowed two runs and eight hits, striking out seven and walking two.


      Chicago's Dayan Viciedo had a career-high four hits, and Adam Dunn hit a two-run homer in the ninth to pull the White Sox within two. Joba Chamberlain got the final out for his first save, retiring Alexei Ramirez on a liner to left with one on.
