Verlander in control, Tigers beat White Sox

CHICAGO (AP) Justin Verlander turned in one of his most effective outings this year and once again beat the White Sox, leading the Detroit Tigers past Chicago 7-1 Friday night.

The contending Tigers won for the fifth time in six games. Chicago has lost nine of 10.

Verlander (12-11) beat the White Sox for the 14th time in 18 decisions since June 10, 2009 - the most wins by any pitcher against a single team in that span.
