Verlander in control, Tigers beat White Sox

(AP) -- It was just one pitch, but Justin Verlander and the Detroit Tigers can only hope it turns out to be a turning point in their season.

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 right-hander showed some of his former Cy Young form, particularly to wiggle out of a jam in the first inning. After Verlander's wild pickoff throw set up a sacrifice fly by Adam Dunn, Verlander reached back to strike out Tyler Flowers on a 95 mph fastball and leave the bases loaded.
