The Tigers regained the lead in third as Castro singled and scored on Eric Haase's one-out double.

Chicago tied it again in the fourth. Garcia singled and Moncada drew a two-out walk before Eloy Jimenez ripped a single.

Chicago took the lead in the seventh against Joe Jimenez (3-2). Abreu hit a single with one out and moved to second on a long fly out. Vaughn then bounced a single up the middle to drive in Abreu.
