Tigers 2, White Sox 1

DETROIT — J.D. Martinez broke an eighth-inning tie with a pinch-hit homer to lead the Tigers to their eighth straight victory. Playing for the first time since fracturing his elbow June 16, Martinez hit for James McCann to lead off the inning. The White Sox put their first two runners on against Francisco Rodriguez in the ninth, and Melky Cabrera moved to third on Justin Morneau's flyout. Rodriguez struck out Todd Frazier but walked Avisail Garcia to load the bases before former Ray Dioner Navarro grounded out to second to end the game.
