Detroit, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Miguel Cabrera drove in three runs and Rajai 
Davis  had three hits, including a solo homer, to lead the Detroit Tigers to a 
7-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday. 

Max  Scherzer (2-1) had 10 strikeouts in six innings and the Tigers banged out 
13 hits to earn a split of the four-game series. 

Scherzer  gave up  two runs on seven  hits and a walk and raised his strikeout 
total to 44 in 33 innings this season. 

"I  did  a good  job of pitching  with runners on  base and  I was able to get 
strikeouts when I needed to," said Scherzer. 

Adam  Dunn homered for  the White Sox and Jose Quintana (1-2) took the loss in 
six innings after yielding three runs on seven hits with three strikeouts. 

The  Tigers went 5-4  on a homestand and the White Sox finished off a 3-4 road 
trip. 

"We  had opportunities,"  said White Sox  manager Robin  Ventura. "They  took 
advantage  of theirs  with  (Quintana).  He pitched  a  good  ballgame and  he 
deserved  better. But  what can you say?  Max (Scherzer) got us when he needed 
to." 

Dunn,  who hit  a two-run homer in  his previous at-bat in the ninth inning of 
Chicago's  8-6  loss on Tuesday,  cracked a 91  mph Scherzer fastball over the 
right-center field wall in the second inning. 

But  Detroit tied  the game in the bottom  of the second and took the lead for 
good in the third. 

Austin  Jackson tripled  with two outs in the second after right-fielder Dayan 
Viciedo over ran the ball and Nick Castellanos followed with an RBI single. 

Ian Kinsler hit a two-out single in the third inning, went to second base on a 
wild pitch and scored on Cabrera's single to give the Tigers the lead. 

Davis'  two-out homer to  left field in the fifth gave Detroit a 3-1 advantage 
and  came after  Danny Worth  was  caught trying  to steal  second base  after 
hitting a single. 

Tigers  right  fielder Torii  Hunter lost  Viciedo's fly  ball leading off the 
sixth  inning and Viciedo  raced around the bases for a triple, then scored on 
Alexei Ramirez's sacrifice fly to get the White Sox within a run. 

Bryan  Holaday hit a one-out single off Maikel Cleto in the seventh inning and 
later  scored on Cabrera's two-run single up the middle off Daniel Webb, which 
gave the Tigers a 5-2 lead. 

Ramirez  hit an  RBI single off Joba Chamberlain to highlight a two-run eighth 
inning  for the White Sox. Viciedo scored the second run from third base after 
Holaday made a bad throw to second trying to catch Alejandro De Aza stealing. 

But  the Tigers  added two  insurance  runs in  the  bottom of  the inning  on 
Holaday's single and Davis' double. 

Joe Nathan pitched the ninth inning for his fourth save of the season, walking 
Marcus  Semien with one out. The game ended with a double play when Jose Abreu 
struck  out  swinging and  was called for  batter interference for obstructing 
Holaday on a throw to second as Semien attempted a steal. 

                                   Game Notes 

The White Sox  will start a six-game homestand Friday against Tampa Bay. That
