Podsednik single in 9th lifts Chisox over Tigers

CHICAGO – Scott Podsednik hit an RBI single off Joel Zumaya with the bases loaded in the ninth inning, giving the Chicago White Sox a 4-3 rainy win over the visiting Detroit Tigers.

The start of the game was delayed nearly three hours by showers. The Tigers almost made it an even longer day when Curtis Granderson hit a tying, two-run homer off closer Bobby Jenks with two outs in the top of the ninth.

But the White Sox took advantage of Zumaya's throwing error - he slipped and threw wildly on a bunt - and loaded the bases with no outs. Podsednik singled past a diving second baseman Placido Polanco to win it.
