DETROIT (AP) — Jeff Samardzija pitched a one-hitter, allowing a leadoff single to Victor Martinez in the fifth inning, and led the Chicago White Sox over the Detroit Tigers 2-0 Monday in the opener of a day-night doubleheader.

Martinez blooped an opposite-field hit over shortstop Alexei Ramirez and in front of left fielder Trayce Thompson on a 2-0 pitch, then was erased when Jefry Marte grounded into a one-out forceout.

No other batter reached base against Samardzija (10-13), who struck out six in his second shutout this season and the third of his big league career. He threw just 88 pitches in a game that took 2 hour, 12 minutes.

Samardzija had been 1-8 with a 9.24 ERA in his previous nine starts.

Adam Eaton singled in Carlos Sanchez in the third, and Sanchez homered in the sixth against Kyle Ryan (2-4).
