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.
