Chris Bassitt gets 1st MLB win, White Sox slow down 1st-place Tigers with 2-0 victory

DETROIT – Chris Bassitt pitched into the eighth inning for his first major league win, and the Chicago White Sox slowed Detroit’s chase of the AL Central title with a 2-0 victory over the Tigers on Monday night.

Detroit remained 1 1/2 games ahead of the second-place Royals , pending the result of their regularly scheduled game in Cleveland . Hours earlier, the Indians finished off a win in a suspended game against Kansas City .

Tyler Flowers hit a two-run homer for the White Sox , and the Tigers were unable to take advantage of Chicago’s inexperienced starter.

The loss assured Detroit would start a division series on the road, even if it wins the AL Central.

The game turned into an unexpected pitchers’ duel between Bassitt and fellow rookie Kyle Lobstein . Both were making their fifth career start, but they looked like aces in the middle of a pennant race.
