The White Sox got a bit of a reprieve after dropping eight of nine and moved within a game of first-place Detroit in the AL Central. The Tigers lost to Minnesota 4-2.
The Rays began the night two games behind Oakland for the second AL wild-card spot. But they came up short in this one, ending a streak that launched them back into playoff contention.
Both teams have five games remaining, including two against each other.
