Eduardo Rodríguez finally got this Friday the victory that had eluded him throughout the month of September and the Tigers dominated the White Sox 5-3 in Chicago.
E-Rod pitched 6.0 innings of three runs, one walk and three strikeouts to ultimately earn his fourth win of the year.
The Bengali offense supported him early with three lines between the first and second innings. And, just after the White Sox tied it 3-3 in the sixth on AJ Pollock’s home run, the Tigers responded again to preserve Pollock’s victory.
Riley Greene broke the tie in the seventh with a sacrifice fly and the next inning Spencer Torkelson drove in the fifth with a double.
