Tigers Vs. White Sox Final Score: Putting Baserunners On, Luke Putkonen Not Good Enough In 7-5 Loss

The Tigers' streak of games without two consecutive wins continued on Monday night, as they fell to the Chicago White Sox, 7-5.

The Tigers scored three times in the top of the first and another two in the third, but the White Sox hit a pair of two-run homers off Tigers starter Drew Smyly and scored another three off Luke Putkonen, who relieved Smyly in the sixth inning after Smyly threw just 69 pitches.

The Tigers had plenty of opportunities with 12 hits and six walks, but they were a poor 3-for-17 with runners in scoring position and left 13 stranded on the base paths in the game.

Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder each had three hits in the loss.

The brief, two-game series wraps up Tuesday afternoon at 2:10 p.m. ET.
