Doug Fister pitched eight impressive innings, Austin Jackson homered and Jose Iglesias drove in a run in his Detroit debut to lead the Tigers to a 2-1 win over the Chicago White Sox on Friday night.
The White Sox lost their eighth straight game, and AL Central-leading Detroit has won 10 of 11.
Fister (10-5) allowed a run and seven hits, striking out two. Joaquin Benoit pitched a hitless ninth for his 11th save in 11 chances.
Iglesias, acquired from Boston this week in a three-team deal, started at third base in place of Miguel Cabrera, who experienced soreness after running and was scratched pregame.
Hector Santiago (3-7) allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings. He struck out seven and walked one.
