After Jose Abreu's infield single in the fifth inning, Todd Frazier hit his sixth home run of the season to put the White Sox up a touchdown and the extra point, 7-0.
Tim Anderson was originally assessed an error on Andrew Romine's sharp ground ball to lead off the seventh. Gonzalez lost his bids for a flawless game, no hitter and shutout in the span of three batters to lead off the seventh inning, but that didn't take away much from how good he was in a 7-3 win for the South Siders at Guaranteed Rate Field.
Gonzalez absorbed the loss in each of his last five starts and owns a 6.99 ERA and a.336 batting average allowed in that span.
The game was halted prior to the top of the fourth by a 30-minute rain delay, though it didn't stop Gonzalez's momentum.
It was the continuance of a bad trend this season: Zimmermann victimized by hard contact and home runs. The Tigers have allowed 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 16 games.
(Until) the eighth inning, I didn't give up a hard-hit ball all day.
News White Sox fans knew was coming for the better part of a week was made official by the White Sox on Saturday morning. Prior to Game One of Saturday's double header, Robert threw out the first pitch.
"I started off really good", Gonzalez said.
Willy Garcia tripled home Omar Narvaez and scored on a throwing error on the same play to stake the Sox to a 2-0 lead in the third.
Detroit's Alex Avila cut it to 3-2 with a solo homer in the fifth.
Gonzalez, who had struggled in his career against the Tigers, allowed three runs on six hits in 7 2/3 innings, with six strikeouts and no walks.
"It's unfortunate it's coming on the road on a road trip where we've had some insane weather and some insane scheduling, it just kind of adds to the frustration, but.it's part of the game". It's a positive start to this home stand - which continues with a three-game series against the Boston Red Sox - after going 3-7 on a recent 10-game road trip. "Hopefully, I can get it together and help the Tigers win some games".
NOTES: The Tigers designated OF Tyler Collins for assignment to make room for OF Alex Presley from Triple-A Toledo before the game.
The offense. They managed only four hits, and didn't score any runs despite drawing nine walks. Farmer has appeared in 32 games over three Major League Baseball seasons, including eight starts, and is 0-6 with a 6.84 ERA.
