Jose Iglesias added to the scoring when he hit a groundout RBI to make the score 4-1 before Nicholas Castellanos came up and capped the big inning with a RBI single. Detroit led 5-1 heading into the top of the fifth.

The White Sox tried to fight their way back with a RBI single from Melky Cabrera in the top of the fifth. Jose Iglesias delivered the final blow in the bottom half of the fifth when he hit a two-run scoring Jim Adduci and John Hicks.

Todd Frazier added a solo shot in the top of the sixth but couldn’t muster any more offense as Detroit went on to win 7-3.

Iglesias continued his dominance against Miguel Gonzalez going two-for-three with three RBI’s.
