Tigers end slide to White Sox

DETROIT — The rain stopped.

It was intermittent during the early innings at Comerica Park this afternoon. But as the bottom of the fourth inning began, the rain stopped.

The Detroit Tigers, meanwhile, did their best to keep it going. It wasn’t powerful, it wasn’t pretty, but batter after batter early in the frame, they kept dropping balls into the outfield.

And by the time the fourth ended, the team had the offensive breakthrough it had been looking for the past four games.

The Tigers batted around in the fourth inning, scoring four runs on five hits, and injury substitutes John Hicks and Jim Adduci kept the team treading water while they anxiously await the return of their superstars. They snapped a four-game losing streak beating the White Sox, 7-3.

The Tigers batted around in the fourth, scoring four runs on five hits, providing right-hander Jordan Zimmermann with sufficient support in a 7-3 win over the White Sox at Comerica Park.

The win snapped a four-game losing streak and pulled the team to the .500 mark on the season (12-12).

Hicks hit an RBI single in that inning, recorded his third multi-hit game, and scored two runs in the win. Justin Upton led off the inning with a single. Alex Avila – who has been the team’s most consistent hitter as of late – followed with a single. Adduci drove Upton in on a double. Hicks drove Avila in on a single. Nick Castellanos then got in on the act a few batters later with a RBI single.
