Plawecki Lifts Tigers to 7-1 Win
Two good teams met in a late-season showdown.

The Detroit Tigers defeated the Chicago White Sox, 7-1, at Guaranteed Rate Field today. Leading the charge for Detroit was catcher Kevin Plawecki. He was 3 for 4 with a home run and 2 singles. He scored 3 times and drove in 3. Detroit raised its record to 99-62 with the win.

Plawecki had a key at-bat for Detroit early in the game. With runners on 2nd and 3rd, he hit a 3-run home run. It was his 1st home run of the season and gave Detroit an early 3-0 lead.

"I still think this team can play even better," Plawecki told the Detroit News.
