DETROIT (AP) -For the Detroit Tigers, 2008 is starting to resemble 2003.
A.J. Pierzynski drove in five runs with three hits, including a tiebreaking, three-run homer in the seventh inning Friday that led the Chicago White Sox over the Tigers 8-5.
Detroit, the only winless team in the major leagues, is 0-4 for the first time since the Tigers dropped their first nine games in 2003, when they lost an AL-record 119 times.
Ivan Rodriguez had three hits and drove two runs for Detroit, which was swept by Kansas City at home to start the season.
Carlos Quentin also homered for Chicago.
Boone Logan (1-0) got the final three outs in the sixth, relieving after Brandon Inge singled off starter Jose Contreras. Bobby Jenks pitched a scoreless ninth for his second save in as many chances.
Jason Grilli (0-1) gave up three runs and five hits in one inning.
