DETROIT (AP) -The Chicago White Sox got to Detroit's bullpen again.
Jermaine Dye doubled in the go-ahead run in the 10th inning and Chicago beat the Tigers 7-5 Saturday for its fourth straight win. The victory came less than 24 hours after the White Sox pushed across a run in the seventh against Detroit reliever Jason Grilli and held on for a 5-4 win.
This time it was Fernando Rodney (1-4), who gave up two hits and two runs in the 10th. The Tigers have lost three straight.
David Aardsma (2-0) got the last out of the ninth for the win and Bobby Jenks pitched a perfect 10th for his sixth save in seven chances.
Chicago starter Jose Contreras retired 16 straight batters after Carlos Guillen's first-inning grand slam, but Magglio Ordonez ended the run in the sixth when he sent a two-out pitch deep into left-center field for his second home run of the season.
Nate Robertson gave up three earned runs and five hits in 6 1-3 innings for the Tigers. He struck out three and walked two.
Twins 7, Royals 5
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Mike Redmond had three hits and three RBIs to help the Minnesota get the win.
