Tigers top Sox behind Castro’s go-ahead RBI

Detroit Tigers
DETROIT — The Tigers have raised eyebrows by competing well against contending teams over the last couple of months. This series is different.

These are the White Sox in town, about to clinch their first American League Central title since 2008. With the bevy of young talent on their roster, they have a chance for many more.

If the Tigers are going to contend in the years to come, this is the contender they have to figure out how to beat. Monday’s 4-3 win at Comerica Park is a start.

“This team has handled us all year,” Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said before Monday’s game. “We have not gotten into games very cleanly against these guys, and they’re one of the few playoff teams that have had their way against us.

“Yeah, they’re in our division. This division will run through Chicago for the foreseeable future until somebody steps up and dethrones them.”

The Tigers would obviously love to be that team. Harold Castro’s go-ahead single in the eighth inning Monday helped them at least delay Chicago’s division title celebration.
