White Sox beat Tigers 3-1, but lose Sale to DL

DETROIT (AP) — With Chris Sale out for the immediate future, John Danks may be the top remaining starter for the Chicago White Sox.

He looked ready to fill that role against Detroit.

Danks pitched impressively into the seventh inning, and Jose Abreu and Dayan Viciedo hit RBI doubles to lift the White Sox to a 3-1 victory over the Tigers on Monday night. After the game, Chicago announced that their ace left-hander, was going on the 15-day disabled list with what the team believed was a strained muscle in his throwing arm.

General manager Rick Hahn said the White Sox are erring on the side of caution, and that an MRI suggested no ligament damage.

"I was more concerned before the game, that he was going to get looked at," Danks said. "To hear that he's going to be OK and not miss too much time, it's great. That's a big shoe to fill."

The 25-year-old Sale threw 127 pitches in a loss to Boston on Thursday. He's 3-0 with a 2.30 ERA on the season.

"You just don't want to take any chances," manager Robin Ventura said. "We got it figured out while the game was going on. Give him some rest and get him healthy."

Chicago scored three runs in the seventh off Anibal Sanchez (0-2) after managing only one hit in the first six innings. Danks (2-0) allowed six hits and three walks in 6 1-3 innings, but the Tigers could score only one run off him.

Ronald Belisario got five outs in relief for the White Sox, and Matt Lindstrom pitched the ninth for his second save.

The White Sox scored three runs on four hits in a top of the seventh that took about 25 minutes. Abreu's tying double was upheld after a replay review, and Chicago scored another run when a call at the plate was overturned following a review.
