CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox jumped ahead, and the Detroit Tigers came right back. Corey Davis Jersey . Jose Abreu had a big two-run homer for the White Sox, and Victor Martinez responded with one of his own for the AL Central leaders. Adam Eaton loved every minute of it. Eaton had a key run-scoring single in the sixth inning, and the White Sox snapped a three-game losing streak with a 6-5 victory over the Tigers on Monday night. "South Siders, were grinders," said Eaton, acquired from Arizona in a three-team December trade. "Were going to try to do the little things right and grind games out. I think that was as close to a boxing match as you can get. "Grinding it out, and I wouldnt have a baseball game any other way. I think thats how its supposed to be played." Gordon Beckham had three hits and Conor Gillaspie drove in two runs as Chicago bounced back from a sluggish trip to Southern California. The White Sox took two of three from the Dodgers before getting swept in a weekend series against the Angels. Martinez, Miguel Cabrera and Eugenio Suarez connected for Detroit, which has dropped seven of nine. Cabrera went 2 for 4 while serving as the designated hitter after leaving Sunday nights 5-3 loss to Boston with left hamstring tightness. "I feel better than yesterday," Cabrera said. "In the last couple innings, it was tightening. But hopefully I can come back tomorrow in the field and get loose again." Martinezs two-run shot off Hector Noesi (2-4) trimmed Chicagos lead to 5-4 in the sixth. But the White Sox got a big run in the bottom half on Eatons single and held on to win the opener of a nine-game homestand. Ronald Belisario worked a shaky ninth for his sixth save. "We had so many people contribute in so many different ways," Gillaspie said. Alex Avila hit an RBI double off Belisario before the right-hander retired Suarez on a deep fly to centre. Pinch-runner Rajai Davis advanced to third on the play, but Belisario struck out Ian Kinsler and got pinch-hitter Torii Hunter to ground to third for the final out. Rick Porcello (8-4) struggled through five-plus innings for Detroit, allowing six runs and nine hits. He also committed a costly throwing error that set up Eatons run-scoring hit. "I just couldnt find any consistency in executing pitches," Porcello said. "I mean, we face these guys a lot. They know what youre going to do, and when youre not on point, on your game, theyre going to get all over it." Porcello was 9-1 with a 2.35 ERA in his previous 12 starts against the White Sox. The 25-year-old right-hander went 3-0 with a 1.64 ERA in three starts at U.S. Cellular Field last season. Noesi was charged with four runs and seven hits over 5 2-3 innings in his second straight win. The right-hander, claimed off waivers from Texas in April, pitched six solid innings against the Dodgers in his previous start. "Hes giving us a chance to win," manager Robin Ventura said. "He has been great. The changeup for him has really been a factor that has got him to this point." The White Sox scored three times in the fifth to take a 5-2 lead. Gillaspie drove in Beckham with his second RBI single and Abreu followed with a drive to centre for his 18th homer. Abreu had two hits after he went 1 for 12 in the sweep by the Angels. Cabrera watched for a brief moment as his one-out drive in the fourth sailed over the wall in left for his 12th homer. J.D. Martinez then singled with two down, but Gillaspie robbed Nick Castellanos of extra bases with a leaping grab at third for the final out. Suarez went deep in the fifth, tying it at 2. It was his second homer in his fourth major league game since he was promoted from Triple-A Toledo on Wednesday. NOTES: Victor Martinez has 15 homers and 15 strikeouts this season. ... White Sox GM Rick Hahn said the team has a "positive history" with agent Scott Boras and thinks they will be able to work together again when it comes to top draft pick Carlos Rodon. The White Sox grabbed the left-hander with the No. 3 overall selection Thursday night. The deadline for signing most amateur draft picks is July 18. ... Tigers RHP Justin Verlander (6-5, 4.19 ERA) faces LHP John Danks (4-5, 4.32) on Tuesday night. Bruce Matthews Jersey . -- Top-seed Shahar Peer and Canadian Eugenie Bouchard advanced to the second round of the inaugural WTA Citi Open. Jurrell Casey Jersey . Pekovic had an MRI test Tuesday on his right ankle that revealed bursitis, which is inflammation of the fluid-filled pad that cushions the joint. http://www.authentictitanspro.com/Customized/ . PAUL, Minn – The clock lingered for what seemed like an interminable two minutes and 51 seconds before Mark Fraser finally escaped to the bench during a wildly one-sided first period of an eventual loss to Boston.VANCOUVER - Jay DeMerit got the deal he wanted Monday and provided the troubled Vancouver Whitecaps with some stability at the same time. The teams captain signed a new contract after protracted negotiations. The deal eased some of the pressure on the Whitecaps caused by MLSs 2013 top scorer Camilos departure to a Mexican team and uncertainty surrounding the availability of 2014 first-round draft choice Andre Lewis. "Negotiations are never easy," said DeMerit. "Im just happy that we got (the deal) done." DeMerit who has made a strong recovery after missing most of last season with a torn Achilles tendon suffered in the first game, will suit up for the fourth year of Vancouvers MLS existence. The 34-year-olds re-signing was anticipated after he and the club expressed a desire to extend his contract late last season, but negotiations took longer than he expected. Terms of the contract were not disclosed, but DeMerit indicated it does not extend beyond one year. "Ultimately, for me, Im at an age where I have to go one year at a time," said DeMerit. "At this stage of my career, there is no such thing as a long-term deal. There are only short-term deals." DeMerit, who joined Vancouver after playing in England and has been the Whitecaps captain since their MLS inception, said he had to confirm that he was "still here because of the right reasons." DeMerits reasons included a desire to remain in the Vancouver area. He is married to retired Canadian Olympic snowboard cross gold medallist Ashleigh McIvor and plans to live in the region well beyond his playing days. "What this does is commit me to the future of being in B.C., whether its on the playing field or off the playing field," he said. "I came here for a reason three years ago, and that was to help develop soccer in North America and help develop the Vancouver Whitecaps as an MLS franchise. "What this contract does is solidify that for the future." He also felt it was important to give the Caps some stability after Camilos departure. The Brazilian striker bolted the team to train with Queretaro of Mexicos top league and then angered team officials by donning his new squads jersey before a transfer deal was completed last week. "As the leader for (our) club, I have to provide stability," he said. "Thats part of my role, definitely, in these types of situations." DeMerit has often praised Camilo for his unique shooting and scoring abilities. But the captain contended that Camilos absence will not affect the Whitecaps, who missed the playoffs in 2013 even though the former Vancouver star scored 22 goals. "Im sure the message from day one will be: Everyone who is here is here and the past is the past," said DeMerit. "What you have to consider is thhat were all in this together. Marcus Mariota Jersey. And, when you have that, then you realize that certain players arent here anymore and you dont dwell on those things anymore, and the easier it is to move forward. "And what we have to do here is move forward." But the Caps still must address the nagging question of which newcomers will move the club ahead. In contrast to Toronto FC, the Whitecaps have not made any star acquisitions since Carl Robinson, who has never been a head coach before, replaced the fired Martin Rennie. "Theres no secret that we still need to make a few more additions that will help the character of this club and help the experience of this club," said DeMerit. "But I think that the nucleus is there (in) both older and younger players that are here and have already contributed. Now, its just (about) making sure that we add to that and all the guys contribute in their own way and make sure that we can have a successful season." DeMerits primary personal goal is to remain healthy for the entire season after he was injured while going up for a header early in the 2013 season opener against Toronto FC. Robinson said the central defenders ability to shine after he recovered and became "a rock again" late in the campaign is not a concern. "I think (his comeback) shows a little bit about his comport," said Robinson. "Everybody wrote him off — and maybe me included — last year because he had an horrific injury on the first day of the season." Robinson said DeMerits re-signing will help the team go in "the right direction" and deal with the uncertainty that has arisen in wake of Camilos departure and confusion about whether Lewis, a 19-year-old Jamaican who was chosen seventh overall in the MLS SuperDraft, will play in MLS this year. "We want players that want to be at the club," said Robinson. "(DeMerit) wants to be at the club and we want (him) be at the club, and thats why he continues to be at the club. For growth in any type of club, you need stability, and (DeMerit) is part of that stability." Lewis, who has expressed a strong to play for Vancouver, has already signed with the lower-tier New York Cosmos. But Robinson said he expects that the midfielder will be at Vancouvers upcoming training camp. "I think theres an agreement between Major League Soccer and the Cosmos (for Lewis to join the Whitecaps)," said Robinson. "Were looking forward to having him in camp once his visa arrives." Notes: Robinson said central defender Andy OBrien has overcome injuries that kept him out of the lineup for much of last season and will be ready for training camp. … Players will undergo physicals Saturday and begin the on-field portion of their training camp Monday.
