Bryan Holaday's two-out bunt single broke a tie in the top of the ninth inning and sent the Detroit Tigers to a 4-3 win over the Chicago White Sox in the opener of a brief two-game set Tuesday at U.S. Cellular Field.

A Chicago miscue helped put the go-ahead run 90 feet away, as Austin Jackson stroked a fly ball to right-center field with one away in the frame. Right fielder Dayan Viciedo got under the ball on the warning track, but it tipped off his glove, allowing Jackson to race around to third.

Ronald Belisario (1-3) then struck out Nick Castellanos for the second out before Holaday pushed a perfect bunt down the third-base line. Belisario sprang off the mound and fielded the ball, but his throw to first was high and Jackson scored to give the White Sox the lead.

Joe Nathan worked a 1-2-3 bottom of the ninth to nail down his fifth save of the season, while Joba Chamberlain (1-1) stranded runners on first and second in the eighth to pick up his first win with the Tigers.

Victor Martinez, Torii Hunter and Jackson each added an RBI for Detroit, which has won three of its last four games.

Adam Eaton and Gordon Beckham recorded an RBI and run scored apiece for the White Sox, who had a two-game win streak halted.
