CHICAGO (AP) -Gavin Floyd held the Tigers hitless until Edgar Renteria singled with one out in the eighth inning Saturday and pitched the Chicago White Sox to a 7-0 victory over the Detroit Tigers.
Floyd (2-0) had never pitched more than seven innings in the majors. His no-hit bid ended when Renteria hit a liner to right-center that fell in front of right fielder Jermaine Dye.
A first-round draft pick of Philadelphia in 2001, Floyd struck out four and walked four in 7 1-3 innings on a 39-degree day.
Floyd is now 2-0 with a 1.71 ERA in four starts against Detroit since last September. He is 0-3 with a 4.50 ERA in three starts against other teams in that span.
Chicago took a 1-0 lead off Justin Verlander (0-2) on Orlando Cabrera's first home run for the White Sox, a solo shot in the third.
In the eighth, Verlander beaned Cabrera in the helmet and the White Sox went on to score six more runs.
Verlander allowed four hits and was charged with six runs in 7 2-3 innings. He fell to 1-6 against the White Sox in his career, including 0-4 at U.S. Cellular Field.
