The White Sox used a 6-3 victory over the Tigers on Sunday afternoon to bounce back from a historic loss a night earlier.

After allowing the Tigers to come back from a six-run deficit in the ninth inning Saturday the Sox were able to maintain their early lead on Sunday at Comerica Park.

Sox right-hander Erik Johnson allowed two earned runs on nine hits walked none and struck out one for his second career victory as the Sox spoiled the Tigers’ regular-season home finale.

In Saturday's game the Tigers came back from a six-run deficit in the ninth inning to tie the game before winning 7-6 in the 12th inning. It was the first time in Sox history that they lost a game in which they held a six-run lead in the ninth or later.

On Sunday the Sox helped shake off the loss by taking a 1-0 lead in the first inning on Avisail Garcia's RBI single.

The Tigers evened the score in the fourth inning when Prince Fielder led off with a solo home run off Sox right-hander Erik Johnson.
