8.1.14: Tigers make trade in middle of game
DETROIT (AP) — Moises Sierra had four hits to lift the Chicago White Sox to a 7-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers yesterday. The game quickly became a secondary concern in the Motor City when the Tigers acquired star left-hander David Price from Tampa Bay in a three-team deal. Joakim Soria hit Paul Konerko with the bases loaded in the seventh to give the White Sox a 5-4 lead.
Meanwhile, the Detroit Tigers have added another Cy Young Award winner to their star-studded rotation by acquiring Tampa Bay’s David Price in three-team blockbuster yesterday. The Rays received left-hander Drew Smyly and minor league infielder Willy Adames from the Tigers. Detroit outfielder Austin Jackson is going to the Mariners.
