Melky Cabrera homered and had four RBIs, Matt Davidson went deep and Avisail Garcia drove in three runs to lead the Chicago White Sox over the Detroit Tigers 8-2 on Friday night after the first game of their doubleheader was postponed because of rain.
Garcia, Cabrera and the surging Jose Abreu each had three hits, and the White Sox opened a seven-game homestand on a winning note after dropping seven of 10 out West.
Detroit and Chicago will try again to play two on Saturday after Game 1 got washed out. The postponement was the 26th this year — one more than all of last season, according to Major League Baseball.
The teams waited out an 85-minute delay at the start of Game 2. It finally began at 8:35 p.m. and didn’t end until 12:17 a.m.
Garcia’s three-run double off Matthew Boyd (2-5) with two out in the third gave Chicago a 3-1 lead.
