    Alejandro De Aza singled in the winning run with the bases loaded in the 11th inning to lift the Chicago White Sox to a 4-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night.

    Avisail Garcia had two hits against his former team, drove in two runs and scored two, including the game-winner. The White Sox overcame three errors by shortstop Alexei Ramirez to hand the AL Central leaders their fourth loss in five games.

    The winning rally started when Jeremy Bonderman (2-4) walked Garcia leading off and threw high to second after fielding Jeff Keppinger's bunt. Then, with one out, he walked Tyler Flowers to load the bases.

    Phil Coke came in and De Aza lined a single to right. That made a winner of Addison Reed (5-1), who worked two scoreless innings.
