Verlander in control, Tigers beat White Sox

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Justin Verlander turned in one of his most effective outings this year and once again beat the White Sox, leading the Detroit Tigers past Chicago 7-1 Friday night.

The contending Tigers won for the fifth time in six games. Chicago has lost nine of 10.

Verlander (12-11) beat the White Sox for the 14th time in 18 decisions since June 10, 2009 - the most wins by any pitcher against a single team in that span.

The former AL MVP allowed one run and nine hits in seven innings. It was the first time this year that he allowed fewer than two runs in a game.

Verlander matched his season high with eight strikeouts and walked two.

Scott Carroll (5-9) took the loss but didn't get much support in the field.
