Tigers Take Second Game Of Doubleheader, 7-1

Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - Jeremy Bonderman allowed one run in 6 2/3 solid innings, leading the Detroit Tigers to a 7-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox and a split of a day-night doubleheader.

In the opener, Alexei Ramirez was one of four players to drive in two runs in Chicago's 12-2 rout of Detroit.

The nightcap, though, was all about Bonderman (6-6), who allowed just five hits and a walk while fanning five in one of his most effective outings of the season. The righty helped the Tigers snap a three-game losing streak and remain seven games behind the White Sox in the AL Central -- where they began the day.

Johnny Damon had three hits, drove in two runs and scored once for Detroit, while Brennan Boesch had two RBI in the win.

Paul Konerko homered for the White Sox, who had won seven of eight coming into the contest. Carlos Torres (0-1), making his season debut, gave up five runs, nine hits and five walks in six innings to receive the loss.
