Marquette, MI – Jarrod Saltalamacchia’s bomb in the 8th inning was so high in the air the trajectory of the ball seemed like it wasn’t going to make it, that’s until the place erupted. Salty’s two run homer in the 8th inning lifted the Tigers to a 4-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox at Comerica on Monday night. Justin Wilson came in relief for Daniel Norris and recorded the win while Franciso Rodriguez earned his 423rd in his professional career moving ahead of Billy Wagner for fifth on the career saves list. The Tigers are now 4.5 back in the Central and 1 game behind the Baltimore Orioles for the final Wild Card spot.
