Chicago White Sox's Adam Eaton (1), crosses home plate safely as Detroit Tigers catcher Bryan Holaday waits for the throw during the third inning of a baseball game, Tuesday, in Chicago.

Holaday’s bunt gives Tigers 4-3 win vs White Sox

CHICAGO – Bryan Holaday bunted home Austin Jackson with two out in the ninth to lift the Detroit Tigers to a 4-3 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night.

Jackson lined a long drive to right off Ronald Belisario and reached third when the ball was misplayed for an error by Dayan Viciedo. Jackson scored on Holaday’s surprise bunt down the first base line.

Right-hander Joba Chamberlain (1-1) worked one inning of relief and Joe Nathan earned his fifth save.

Belisario (1-3) pitched two innings, allowing one hit and striking out three.

Holaday, a late lineup addition, went 2 for 4 with an RBI.

White Sox starter Jose Quintana struck out a season-high 10, but had no decision for the third time this season, departing after six innings with the game tied 3-all.

Justin Verlander worked seven innings in his 176th quality start since 2006.
