Verlander rocked as Tigers drop series finale

CHICAGO (AP) -- 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 .

Verlander surrendered seven runs on 11 hits through six innings and never looked comfortable on the mound.

Cabrera missed his third straight game because of an injured left hip flexor. The AL MVP left in the middle of Monday's game.

Torii Hunter homered for the third time time in the series. But the Tigers outfielder exited in the eighth and is day to day with a sore left Achilles.
