Recap: Detroit vs. Chicago WSox

Detroit, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - RBI doubles by Jose Abreu and Dayan Viciedo highlighted a three-run sixth and the Chicago White Sox defeated the Detroit Tigers, 3-1, in the opener of a four-game set.

John Danks (2-0) allowed a run on six hits and three walks over 6 1/3 innings for the White Sox, who have won two in a row on the heels of a four-game losing streak. Matt Lindstrom fired a scoreless ninth to notch his second save of the year.

After the game, the team announced that ace left-hander Chris Sale was going on the 15-day disabled list with a strained muscle in his throwing arm.

"You just don't want to take any chances," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "Give him some rest and get him healthy."

Torii Hunter had two hits and scored a run for Detroit, which had won three of its last four coming in. Anibal Sanchez (0-2) surrendered three runs on five hits and a walk over 6 1/3 frames to get the loss.

"I felt great, and then everything happened in a hurry," Sanchez said.

The Tigers led 1-0 through six innings, but a three-run seventh put Chicago in front.

Back-to-back doubles by Connor Gillaspie and Abreu to begin the frame tied it. After Adam Dunn struck out, Abreu crossed with the go-ahead run on Viciedo's two-bagger off the top of the center field wall.

Alexei Ramirez then singled through the hole on the left side. Viciedo had originally held up at third, but the left fielder Rajai Davis overshot the cutoff man and the ball darted past catcher Alex Avila, which allowed Viciedo to score.

Sanchez, who backed up on the play, threw Viciedo out at the plate, but Viciedo was ruled safe following a review.

Avila hit a one-out, ground-rule double and pinch-hitter J.D. Martinez worked a walk in the ninth, but Davis flied out to left and Ian Kinsler grounded into a force out to end the game.

Detroit's lone run came in the second on Avila's RBI groundout.

Abreu has 18 RBI this season ... The White Sox were 3-for-11 with runners in scoring position, while Detroit finished 0-for-10 and left 10 men on base.
