Tigers deliver timely hits in edge White Sox in 10 innings

carson kelly

Carson Kelly had three hits, including the go-ahead RBI single in the 10th inning, and Mark Canha finished a triple short of the cycle to lift the visiting Detroit Tigers to a 7-6 win against the Chicago White Sox on Saturday.

Limited to six singles in a 1-0 victory in Thursday’s season opener, the Tigers collected 12 hits, including five for extra bases. Canha drove in three runs, while Kelly had two RBIs.

Detroit overcame a big day from White Sox center fielder Luis Robert Jr., who was 3-for-4 with two home runs and four RBIs.

Shelby Miller (1-0) retired the final six White Sox in order to pick up the win for Detroit. Deivi Garcia (0-1) struck out two in the 10th but allowed the inherited, extra-inning runner to score on Kelly’s single.

Kerry Carpenter added two hits for the Tigers.

Robert Jr. launched two-run home runs in the first and third innings against Detroit right-hander Kenta Maeda, who was making his club debut. Maeda also surrendered a solo shot to Braden Shewmake for the rookie’s first career hit. He later added another hit.

Shewmake was 0-for-4 while appearing in two games for the Atlanta Braves last season. He joined the White Sox in a November trade that sent left-handed reliever Aaron Bummer to the Braves in return for five players.

Among them was White Sox right-hander Michael Soroka, who recovered from rough beginnings in his team debut.

Parker Meadows tripled to right on Soroka’s second pitch of the game, part of a three-run, four-hit Tigers barrage in the first inning. Spencer Torkelson followed Meadows with an RBI single, with Canha punctuating the rally with a two-run single.

Maeda spaced six runs and seven hits in 3 1/3 innings with one walk and two strikeouts.

Soroka also took a no-decision after scattering four runs and seven hits in five innings with three walks. He was in line for the victory before Detroit rallied for two runs in the seventh, on Riley Greene’s solo homer and Kelly’s RBI single.

The White Sox loaded the bases with one out in the seventh but couldn’t score, as Will Vest retired Eloy Jimenez on an inning-ending double play.

Meadows robbed Chicago’s Martin Maldonado of a would-be home run to end the fourth.
