Tigers Take Series Against White Sox With 13-8 Victory

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Johnny Damon hit a go-ahead two-run triple in the eighth inning, as the Detroit Tigers outlasted the Chicago White Sox, 13-8, in the rubber match of a three-game series at U.S. Cellular Field.

Damon also doubled and scored twice, while Jhonny Peralta hit two homers and drove in three for Detroit, which has won three of four. Ryan Raburn and Miguel Cabrera each added a solo shot in the win.

Brad Thomas (5-1) took the win for tossing a perfect seventh inning. Tigers starter Armando Galarraga worked five innings and yielded four runs -- three earned -- on seven hits with a pair of walks and struck out five. He has not won a game since beating the New York Mets on June 24.
