White Sox get superb start

The Tigers struck out 49 times in the four-game series at Chicago, the most in baseball over one series of that length since 1913, according to Fox Sports Detroit research Austin Drake. Gonzalez had retired 18 straight batters to start the game before an alleged error by Tim Anderson on an Andrew Romine liner took away the flawless game, leaving a no-hit bid still intact. Initially ruled an error, which briefly kept the no-hitter intact, the play soon was changed to a hit. The White Sox added outfielder Adam Engel from Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday after infielder Tyler Saladino went on the 10-day disabled list for back spasms. But after back-to-back singles followed, including a run-scoring bloop from Miguel Cabrera, the call was reversed between innings.

The White Sox right-hander put the baseball world on perfect-game alert and conjured memories of Mark Buehrle and Philip Humber with his dazzling work through six innings.

Jones said he got the call to replace Kinsler at 2:30 a.m. and walked into the clubhouse about two hours before first pitch. "I just told him to keep working hard".

"I knew I was the 26th man, but I guess that's the goal every time I come up just to leave them with something", Farmer said.

Alas, Anderson's plea for an "E" wasn't necessary.

Willy Garcia tripled home Omar Narvaez and scored on a throwing error on the same play to stake the Sox to a 2-0 lead in the third.

The White Sox took three of four from the Tigers in this weekend series that featured a doubleheader split Saturday. David Robertson got two outs for his seventh save.

Garcia's three-run double off Matthew Boyd (2-5) with two out in the third gave Chicago a 3-1 lead. "We were trying to stay away from a lot of guys (in the bullpen)".

The way Miguel Gonzalez was pitching in his last five starts, a no-hitter seemed unlikely.

Gonzalez (4-5) allowed three runs and six hits in 7 2/3 innings while snapping a five-start losing streak.

"(Friday) when he pinch hit I guess at some point running he felt a little bit in his hamstring again, and this thing has kind of lingered now for over three weeks", manager Brad Ausmus said.
