DETROIT — James McCann homered in the bottom of the ninth inning to complete a dramatic Detroit comeback, and the Tigers beat the Chicago White Sox 5-4 on Sunday.

Detroit trailed 4-0 before scoring four runs in the eighth off Chicago starter Jeff Samardzija. Victor Martinez tied it with a three-run double.

Joakim Soria (3-0) pitched a perfect top of the ninth, and McCann’s one-out drive off Zach Putnam (1-3) cleared the fence in left field to end the game.

It was McCann’s third homer of the year and his first since May 21, when the rookie catcher went deep in the 11th inning to beat Houston.

Samardzija allowed only two hits over the first seven innings, but he couldn’t make it through the middle of the Detroit order in the eighth.
