Tigers knock off White Sox 5-1
(DETROIT) – JaCoby Jones hit an inside-the-park home run in the seventh inning and the Detroit Tigers breezed to their fourth straight victory, 5-1 over the Chicago White Sox on Monday night. LINKC. Niko Goodrum homered and had four hits for the Tigers, who handed Chicago its fifth loss in six games. Detroit is 4-0 since returning from a four-day layoff created by a postponed series against St. Louis, which had a coronavirus outbreak. It wasn't all good news for Detroit, though. First baseman C.J. Cron exited with a left knee injury in the fourth. White Sox slugger Jose Abreu came up limping after grounding out in the eighth and left the game as well. The Tigers improved to 9-5 on the year after losing 114 games in 2019. Detroit was up 3-1 in the seventh when center fielder Adam Engel  went for a lunging catch on a sinking liner by Jones. Engel missed, and it's a long way out to the wall in center field at Comerica Park. Jones circled the bases and scored standing up for a two-run homer, his fifth of the season. Michael Fulmer pitched three scoreless innings for Detroit, and Daniel Norris (1-1) worked two. Gregory Soto went 1 1/3 hitless innings in relief for the Tigers. Chicago starter Dallas Keuchel (2-2) allowed three runs and six hits in six innings. Chicago's only run came in the seventh on an RBI groundout by Engel.
