DETROIT — A vital game in a pennant race and a franchise record both took a back seat Wednesday afternoon to harsh accusations from the Detroit Tigers and White Sox denials.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — They’re still going to commit 100 errors. The unearned runs continue to pile up. And they have given away too many games because of defensive woes.
Overwhelmed by Twins starter Trevor May's 10 strikeouts, the White Sox couldn't find enough offense to overcome Hector Noesi's long-ball troubles, and fell, 6-4, in the series finale Sunday.
Paul Konerko hit off a tee Saturday and took some swings against soft-toss as he works to rehab a fractured sesamoid bone in his left hand. He last played on Sept. 5.
Three comebacks was just enough for the Sox.
