John Danks gives up three home runs in Chicago White Sox 9th straight loss

The Chicago White Sox left hander John Danks gave up three solo home runs in the first four innings en route to a 3-0 loss to the American League Central leading Detroit Tigers on Saturday night at Comerica Park.

The loss extends the Sox losing streak to a season worse, nine-games and put them at a season-high 28 games below .500.

The Tigers got on the board early with Torii Hunter sending a solo home run to left field. Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta added the second solo home run on the night, sending his home run to center field in the second for a 2-0 Tigers lead.

Jose Iglesias started in his second straight game for Tigers All-Star Miguel Cabrera at third base and made his impact felt launching his first career home run with Detroit in the fourth to make it a 3-0 lead.

The Sox recorded three hits off Tigers ace Max Scherzer, who went 7 2/3 innings, striking out six in his league leading 16th victory this season.

Danks is now 0-6 on the road this year after giving up six hits and striking out six in seven innings.

Andre Rienzo (0-0, 0.0 ERA) will take the mound tomorrow in his second career start at 12:08 pm CT (CSN, 670 WSCR) for the Sox against Rick Porcello (8-6, 4.49 ERA) and the Tigers.
