According to Fox Sports Detroit, the White Sox became the first major league team since at least 1974 to put a runner on base in every inning of a four-game series. They scored 26 runs and won three times, including an 8-1 rout on Wednesday.

 

The streak almost came to a halt in the ninth inning when Tigers first baseman Brandon Dixon retired the first two batters before hitting Ryan Cordell with a 60-mph cutter. Leury Garcia followed with an inning-ending groundout.

 

Ivan Nova shut the Tigers out for eight innings, allowing five hits, walking three and striking out one as he picked up his third win in four starts.

 

James McCann had three RBIs, while Tim Anderson reached base five times and scored three runs.

McCann had an RBI double in the first, and Ryan Cordell made it 2-0 with a long homer in the second.

 

Detroit loaded the bases with one out in the second, but Nova got Jody Mercer to ground into a double play.

 

Wellington Castillo had an RBI double in the third, and the White Sox added on in the fifth. Anderson led off with his third hit of the game and scored his third run on Jose Abreu's double. McCann added an RBI single to make it 5-0 and end Alexander's day.

 

Abreu's single off Eduardo Jimenez in the sixth gave the White Sox a 6-0 lead, and Chicago added two more in the eighth. Travis Demeritte provided Detroit's only run with a two-out RBI triple in the ninth.

 

The White Sox start a three-game series at home against the Oakland Athletics on Friday, with Ross Detwiler (1-2, 5.72 ERA) opposing Oakland's Mike Fiers (10-3, 3.46).
