DETROIT -- Jose Abreu homered, drove in four runs -- and accomplished something nobody on the Chicago White Sox had managed in 94 years. Zinedine Zidane Jersey . Abreus three-hit night extended his hitting streak to 18 games, and the White Sox routed the Detroit Tigers 11-4 on Tuesday. Abreu has hit safely in 36 of his last 37 games, and this is his second 18-game streak of the year. The only other player with two 18-game hitting streaks in a season for the White Sox was Hall of Famer Eddie Collins, who had runs of 21 and 22 games in 1920. Collins was already a seasoned veteran by that point. Abreu is in his first year in the majors. "He comes every day prepared and ready to work," manager Robin Ventura said of his 27-year-old Cuban slugger. "Its a very mature approach, and I know Ive said that before, but its true. He comes here and he gets it right away." Abreu and Adam Dunn hit consecutive home runs in the seventh, when the White Sox scored seven runs. Chicago sent 12 batters to the plate in the inning and broke the game open against Anibal Sanchez (7-5) and Joakim Soria. Alexei Ramirez added a three-run double during the rally. Jose Quintana (6-7) allowed two runs and nine hits in six innings. Detroit made three errors, including two in that seventh inning. Soria made his first home appearance since the Tigers acquired him in a trade with Texas. He retired only one of the seven batters he faced and allowed his first two homers of the season. "That was probably the worst outing of my career," Soria said. "You want to make a good impression on the fans and your new team, and then that happens. No matter what pitch I threw, they were right on it. I felt fine, but I missed some over the middle, and they hit all of them." With men on first and second and one out in the seventh, Tyler Flowers singled to left, and left fielder Rajai Davis error allowed a run to score from second. That gave Chicago a 3-2 lead. Soria replaced Sanchez, and after Adam Eatons single loaded the bases, Ramirez doubled to make it 6-2. Abreu followed with a two-run homer, his major league-leading 31st of the year. Dunns solo shot made it 9-2. Sanchez allowed five runs -- four earned -- and six hits in 6 1-3 innings. He struck out six and walked two. QUINTANA SHARP The Chicago left-hander has a 1.84 ERA in his last eight starts, although he hasnt always gotten much run support. That changed in a big way Tuesday. "I tried to throw all my pitches, start ahead in the count early," Quintana said. "Sometimes I fight with my delivery, especially early in the count." SLUMPING AGAIN The Tigers still lead the AL Central by five games over Kansas City, but theyve lost four in a row. This is their fourth losing streak of at least four games this season. The White Sox are now seven games out of first. TRAINERS ROOM White Sox: Reliever Matt Lindstrom (left ankle) threw batting practice to outfielder Avisail Garcia (left shoulder) before the game. Garcia has not played since early April, and Lindstrom has been out since mid-May. Ventura says the team will know more about their status when the White Sox return to Chicago for a six-game homestand that starts Friday. Tigers: Shortstop Eugenio Suarez left the game in the fourth inning with lower back tightness, and third baseman Nick Castellanos was scratched shortly before the game with an injured right index finger. Castellanos was hit with a groundball during batting practice. He and Suarez are both day to day. "Nick could have hit, and he could have played if we needed him, but we decided to play it safe," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "Hell probably be OK tomorrow. With Suarie, well just see how he feels tomorrow afternoon." ON DECK White Sox: Right-hander Hector Noesi (5-7) starts against the Tigers on Wednesday night and will try for his third straight win. He allowed four runs in a victory over Detroit on June 9. Tigers: Reigning AL Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer (12-3) takes the mound. Hes unbeaten in his last six starts. Steve Mandanda France Jersey .com) - Troy Brouwer scored the game-winning goal with just 12. Steven Nzonzi France Jersey . Like a magic trick, the puck popped out behind Stalock in the San Jose net. While Sharks coach Todd McLellan decried the legality of the tiebreaking goal, the Los Angeles Kings celebrated their latest, greatest escape yet. http://www.soccerfranceproshop.com/c-42-...ersey.aspx . While plenty of statistics illustrate Torontos turnaround in the second year of manager Ryan Nelsens tenure, stopping goals is not one of them.TORONTO - The trainers room is beginning to empty for Toronto FC and not a minute too soon.Captain Steven Caldwell and midfielder Jonathan Osorio are the latest players to be declared fit with both expected to see action for Toronto (9-11-7) against Chivas USA (6-16-6) in a rare Sunday game at BMO Field.Caldwells return is key. The 34-year-old Scottish centre back is the teams lynchpin in defence and has been sorely missed for 13 games this season through injury or suspension, most recently with a quad muscle problem.As soon as he joined in training this week, hes the loudest voice on the field, manager Grey Vanney said of his captain. He has everybodys attention ... And hes an intelligent player. Hes seen anything more than once. So hes helping to keep us in good shape, hes recognizing good plays before they happen, hes putting guys in the good spots.His leadership on the field is invaluable. Weve clearly missed it over the last stretch of games and hes excited to get back.Midfielder Collen Warner (hamstring) and defender-midfielder Bradley Orr (toe) are not available.Both teams have been on poor runs of late. Chivas is winless in 10 (0-9-1) whiile Toronto (0-4-2) is winless in six. Corentin Tolisso Jersey. The poor Toronto run has seem the club tumble down the Eastern Conference standings. Points are needed to get back into playoff contention.Chivas, meanwhile, is buried in the Western Conference basement, having given up three or more goals in its last four games.A Vancouver win over Portland on Saturday coupled with a Toronto win Sunday and Chivas will be eliminated from playoff contention with no guarantee the team will operate next season.Theyre in a tough spot. Theyre an unpredictable opponent, to be honest, because theres a lot of things swirling around that club, Vanney, a former Chivas assistant coach, said of the franchise that is under league rule until a new owner steps up.Last time I was there, it was very similar, just a lot of things swirling around as to whats next for Chivas. So I know what that locker-room feels like. They have a lot of guys who are uncertain as to what their future looks like ... They could come out on fire, trying to prove something or they could come out and at the first sign of adversity, kind of tuck it in. We dont know what were going to get.
