— Jake Peavy pitched into the eighth inning and the Chicago White Sox beat Justin Verlander and Detroit 7-4 Thursday as the Tigers again played minus Miguel Cabrera.
Cabrera missed his third straight game because of an injured left hip flexor. The AL MVP left in the middle of Monday's game.
Detroit right fielder, Torii Hunter, left Thursday's game against the Chicago White Sox in the eighth inning because of a sore left Achilles. Hunter says the problem was caused by dress shoes that were too tight.
Hunter homered during Detroit's 7-4 loss.
Hunter was confident he would play Friday night at home against Philadelphia despite being listed as day to day.
MVP Cabrera sits out 3rd straight game
Reigning American League MVP Miguel Cabrera is not in Detroit's lineup for the third straight game Thursday against the Chicago White Sox.
