Sox Stave Off Elimination: Beat First Place Detroit

The White Sox chances of making the playoffs at this point are pretty much a moot point as they are one game away from being eliminated from the American League Central Division. However, that doesn't mean they can't play the role of spoiler. And that is just what they did as they beat the Tigers 2-0.

The Sox may may play a role in whether or not the Tigers make the playoffs. Jake Peavy took the mound for the Southsiders tonight and his offense gave him just enough for the win. Peavy went seven innings and struck out eight. Gordon Beckham helped out his pitcher out with a two run homer in bottom of the sixth.

And that was the end of the offense for the night, thankfully enough Peavy and the bullpen made it stand up. Despite the Sox being practically mathematically eliminated from the post season, there is one thing Sox fans can hang their hats on and that is Jake Peavy.

If he can come back healthy next season they will have formidable rotation. The Sox continue their series against Detroit tonight at 6:05 p.m. CT. Detroit's Nate Robertson (2-2) will take on Sox Freddy Garcia (2-3).
