SHARE Sox lose for 10th time in 11 games

DETROIT — The White Sox offense remained punchless against Detroit right-hander Max Scherzer, and the Tigers complete a three-game series sweep with a 3-0 victory at Comerica Park.

The Sox’ 8-14 record marks their worst start since 2001, when they were 7-15.

Brandon Inge and Austin Jackson’s back-to-back RBI doubles in the sixth against John Danks gave a three-run lead to Tigers starter Max Scherzer (4-0), who allowed two hits through six. One was a bunt single by Juan Pierre.

The Sox, trying to avoid their 10th loss in their last 11 games, were held hitless through the first three innings for the third time in the series. They finished with five hits, all singles.

John Danks took the loss.

“You just have to move on,” Danks said. “We aren’t going to dwell on it. We know it’s early. We aren’t helping ourselves digging ourselves a hole. At the same time, there’s plenty of time and plenty of talent on this team to think we are out of it just yet. We are going to battle and try to win every game we can and go from there.”
