CHICAGO, July 25 (UPI) -- Alexei Ramirez ignited a first-inning rally and drove in two runs in the fourth Thursday in the Chicago White Sox' 7-4 win over the Detroit Tigers.

Ramirez had a first-inning single and scored the game's first run and his two-run single keyed the fourth-inning rally that put Chicago ahead 6-2.

Tyler Flowers knocked in two runs for the White Sox, doubling in the fourth and adding his ninth home run of the season in the sixth.

Jake Peavy (8-4) allowed four runs on four hits and a pair of walks while striking out seven over seven innings. Matt Lindstrom had an inning of no-hit relief and Addison Reed pitched a one-hit ninth for his 26th save.

Chicago pinned the loss on Justin Verlander (10-8), who was charged with seven runs -- all earned -- on 11 hits in six innings.

Ramirez started the attack on Verlander with his first-inning single. He stole second and then scored on Paul Konerko's base hit. Jeff Keppinger knocked in Adam Dunn for the 2-0 Chicago lead.

Torii Hunter connected for a two-run home run in the fourth off Peavy but Flowers had a run-scoring double ahead of the two-run single by Ramirez. Alex Rios singled to allow Ramirez to score, putting the White Sox up 6-2.

Detroit added single runs in the seventh and eighth with home runs by Victor Martinez and Brayan Pena.
