CHICAGO (AP) -Scott Podsednik scored from first base on pitcher Zach Miner's throwing error in the ninth inning, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Detroit Tigers 4-3 Thursday to take three of five in the series against the defending AL champions.
Chicago had not won a home series since winning two of three against Oakland from May 21-23.
With the score 3-all, Podsednik singled off Miner (1-3) leading off the ninth. Josh Fields sacrificed, Miner bobbled the ball and then made a bad throw to second baseman Placido Polanco, who was covering first base.
The ball went into foul territory down the right-field line, and Ryan Raburn's throw to the plate was too late to get Podsednik.
Bobby Jenks (3-4) pitched a scoreless ninth for the victory, Chicago's fifth in nine games against the Tigers this season.
Detroit's Justin Verlander allowed just three runs and three hits in seven innings. Verlander remained at 11-3 and got his second straight no-decision after a stretch in which he won six of seven starts.
Orioles 10, Devil Rays 7
BALTIMORE (AP) - Brian Roberts hit a three-run homer and walked three times, helping the Orioles win their fourth straight and improve to 18-13 under interim manager Dave Trembley.
Kevin Millar, Nick Markakis and Chris Gomez had two RBIs apiece for the Orioles, now 9-4 since the All-Star break.
Carlos Pena and Ty Wigginton homered for the Devil Rays, who have been outscored 64-20 during a six-game skid. Tampa Bay has lost nine in a row in Baltimore and is 1-8 against the Orioles this season.
Rob Bell (3-1), the first of four Baltimore relievers, got four straight outs after replacing ineffective starter Steve Trachsel.
Tampa Bay starter Edwin Jackson (2-10) allowed six runs, seven hits and three walks in 3 1-3 innings. He threw six shutout innings against the New York Yankees in his previous start, but couldn't up with an encore and walked off the mound with a 7.00 ERA.
