DETROIT — Jose Abreu and Avisail Garcia homered in a five-run second inning, and the Chicago White Sox chased Jordan Zimmermann early in his return from the disabled list, snapping Detroit’s eight-game winning streak with a 6-3 victory over the Tigers on Thursday.
Zimmermann (9-5) allowed six runs and six hits in 1 2/3 innings, failing to strike out a batter in his first outing since June 30. He had been out with a right neck strain.
Jose Quintana (9-8) allowed three runs and eight hits in 7 1/3 innings. David Robertson pitched the ninth for his 26th save in 30 chances.
Chicago won for only the second time in eight games.
Miguel Cabrera and Ian Kinsler homered for Detroit, but the Tigers fell to three games behind AL Central-leading Cleveland.
