DETROIT - David Price walked off the mound Tuesday night wondering if he had just blown the AL Central title for his new team.It didnt take long for his team to improve his mood.After Price blew a 3-0 lead in the top of the ninth, the Detroit Tigers only needed three batters to pull out a 4-3 victory and hold on to their one-game lead in the division.With the score tied 3-3, Ian Kinsler led off the ninth with a single, took second when Jake Petricka (1-6) walked Torii Hunter and scored when Miguel Cabrera lined a base hit to left field.I went into the top of the ninth knowing that I had to finish it off, Price said. I didnt care if I gave up two runs, but I couldnt give up three. Im just glad that our offence saved me.Hunter agreed that the offence wanted to make a statement and pick up Price.When youve got a 3-0 lead in the top of the ninth and David Price on the mound, you think the game is over, he said. But then they tie it, and we had to go right back out there and win it. Kins did a great job, I had a good at-bat to draw the walk and then Miggy did what Miggy does.For most of the night, it looked like Price was going to show exactly why the Tigers had traded for him at the deadline, taking a three-hit shutout into the ninth. Adam Eaton singled and moved to third on Alexei Ramirezs double. That got Joe Nathan up in the pen, and after Jose Abreu struck out, Avisail Garcia lined a two-run single to centre.Brad Ausmus visited the mound, drawing boos from the crowd, but he left Price in.Dayan Viciedo flew out to right for the second out, and Paul Konerko, who was honoured by the Tigers before the game, singled to move Garcia to third. Marcus Semien then blooped a single to centre, tying the game.With the way David was pitching, it didnt look too good for us, White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. We got it to the bottom of the ninth, but first and second with no one out for Miggy isnt a great situation, either.Nathan (5-4) came in to get the final out, and picked up the victory after Petricka couldnt get an out in the bottom of the inning.White Sox rookie Scott Carroll allowed two runs a€” one earned a€” in six-plus innings. He gave up five hits and two walks while striking out four.Chicago almost broke a scoreless tie in the fifth, as Josh Phegley hit Prices 3-2 pitch to the wall in left, but J.D. Martinez had plenty of time to set himself at the wall and reach up to make the catch to rob a home run. Price broke into a wry smile as he watched Martinez make the play.The Tigers took the lead in the bottom of the inning. Rajai Davis singled, and was running on the pitch when Kinsler hit what would have otherwise been an easy double-play ball. Now in scoring position, Davis stole third and scored when Phegleys throw trickled past Marcus Semien and into left.Detroit used more speed to get a run in the seventh, as pinch-runner Andrew Romine was able to go from first to third on Semiens error, and score on Kinslers single. Hunter followed with a ground-rule double to make it 3-0.TRAINERS ROOMWhite Sox: Eaton returned to the lineup after missing two games to deal with a personal matter. He led off against Price. ... With the White Sox out of the race, LHP Chris Sale will make his final start of the season on Wednesday instead of starting Tuesday and Sunday on normal rest. Ventura said that with Sale having been injured earlier this year, it made sense to ease him into the off-season.Tigers: RHP Anibal Sanchez (pectoral strain) was activated from the disabled list before Tuesdays game, and will finish the season pitching out of the bullpen. Ausmus said, because of Sanchezs outstanding pitch selection, he plans to use him in high-leverage situations.UP NEXTThe teams finish the three-game series Wednesday afternoon with Sale (12-4, 2.20) facing Justin Verlander (14-12, 4.68) in each pitchers last start of the regular season.CELEBRATING KONERKOBefore the game, the Tigers honoured Konerko by presenting him with a framed box containing a first-base bag, a jar of dirt from the right-handed batters box and a list of his accomplishments at Comerica Park. He leads all visiting players in hits, runs, total bases and RBIs since the stadium opened in 2000, and trails David Ortiz by one home run.NO ROOKIE JITTERSCarroll said that he had a great time pitching in a pennant race, even if it wasnt his team that is in contention.Thats certainly as close to a playoff game as Ive ever come, he said. It was really cool. Jamal Crawford Jersey . -- Get a flow chart ready to follow the Packers quarterback situation. Taj Gibson Jersey . Returning to Davis Cup tennis, Federer cruised past Ilija Bozoljac, winning 6-4, 7-5, 6-2 in less than two hours. Federer faced little challenge from Bozoljac, who served well but still was no match for his Swiss opponent. ... Jersey/.ca presents a week long look at some of the teams and stories that will shape the up coming campaign. Tyus Jones Jersey .Gasol had 16 points and 13 rebounds, and the Bulls beat the winless Orlando Magic 98-90 on Tuesday night.Jimmy Butler led the Bulls with 21 points and Taj Gibson added 16 for Chicago, which finally pulled away in the final minutes of a game that was tied after three quarters. Gorgui Dieng Jersey . Ellis had a season-high 37 points and two key assists late, Dirk Nowitzki led a fourth-quarter rally with 14 of his 35 points, and the Mavericks spoiled Howards best offensive night in Houston with a 123-120 victory over the Rockets on Wednesday night.SAN DIEGO -- Tiger Woods was right. The South Course at Torrey Pines is playing about as tough as it did for the U.S. Open in 2008. But thats the only similarity. Woods won that U.S. Open. He wont even have a tee time in the final round at the Farmers Insurance Open. Gary Woodland used power to his advantage Saturday -- oddly enough, everywhere but on the par 5s -- to pick up five birdies in his round of 2-under 70 that gave him a one-shot lead over Jordan Spieth and Marc Leishman going into a final day that wont include Woods. Instead of getting back into the tournament, the defending champion and eight-time winner at Torrey Pines delivered a shocking performance. Woods went seven straight holes making bogey or worse and wound up with a 79, matching his worst score on American soil. Woods left town without speaking to reporters and with an "MDF" next to his name, which probably should have been "OMG." Thats the PGA Tours acronym for "made the cut, did not finish." Because more than 78 players advanced to the weekend, there was a 54-hole cut for top 70 and ties. Only one other player, club pro Michael Block, had a worse score than Woods. "You get going south on this golf course, you can definitely put up some numbers in a hurry," Woodland said when he heard about Woods score. "I dont think hes too concerned about it." Theres plenty for everyone to be concerned about at Torrey Pines -- a beast of a course, thick rough, rock-hard greens, and nearly two dozen players so close to the lead that Sunday could be wide open. Woodland was at 8-under 208. It was the highest 54-hole score to lead this tournament since Dave Rummells at 4-under 212 in 1993. Spieth had a one-shot lead to start the third round and it was gone quickly. He missed a 30-inch par putt on the opening hole and took a double bogey on No. 5. His biggest putt might have been a 6-footer for par on the 14th, and Spieth looked confident the rest of the way to salvage a 75. Leishman had a relatively boring round of 72 on a gorgeous day along the Pacific -- one birdie, one bogey, 16 pars. That might be what it takes on this monster of a course that features rough that might even make the USGA blush. "If you let bogeys worry you on that golf course, its going to be a pretty long day," Leishman said. "You dont have to do a whole lot wrong to have a bogey." The average score on the South through three rounds was 74.24, compared with 74.97 during the U.S. Open. And keep in mind, the field for the Farmers Insurance Open is almost entirely PGA Tour or European Tour players. San Diego native Pat Perez, who used to work the practice range as a teenager during this event, salvaged a 72 and was two shots behind with Morgan Hoffman (72).dddddddddddd Ryo Ishikawa had a 69 and was in a large group at 5-under 211 that included Nicolas Colsaerts (75) and Andres Romero of Argentina, whose 67 was the best score of the day. "When you play with Gary, who hits it 40 yards farther than I do, it doesnt look that hard," Perez said. "Where he hits it is unbelievable. But it was a lot harder today." Twenty-two players were separated by four shots going into Sunday. Ottawas Brad Fritsch shot a 72, and is three back at 211. Graham DeLaet of Weyburn, Sask., carded a 69, and is four back. Everything was in place for a good show except for the tours two biggest stars. In the first network telecast of the year -- and the first Sunday in golf without going against the NFL playoffs -- Woods was out of the tournament and Phil Mickelson pulled out Friday night after making the cut because of muscle pain in his back. Woodland has been heading north since winning the Reno-Tahoe Open last year. He contended at The Barclays, lost in a playoff in Malaysia and now feels confident about whos in charge at San Diego. Yes, the South is a beast. But the Kansas native hits it a long way. Then again, he made par on all of them, including a three-putt pars on the sixth and 18th holes. That was OK, for Woodland had nothing more than a wedge in on No. 1, and he collected a pair of birdies on the par 3s. His only lapse was a double bogey on No. 17 from a bad lie in the bunker and a three-putt. "If I drive the ball in play, Im playing a little different golf course than most guys are playing," Woodland said. Spieth, with a chance to move into the top 10 in the world with a win, hits the ball plenty far. He just wasnt very straight. The Texan pulled his opening tee shot and struggled to find fairways the rest of the day. He hit only five of them. The steady finish left him confident about collecting his second PGA Tour win. "Only one shot back and a bunched leaderboard," Spieth said. "Its going to take a good score tomorrow. ... Im excited about tomorrow. I had some great saves down the stretch today, so take that momentum." Woods thought he had some momentum, coming off a birdie on the 17th hole and in the fairway on the par-5 18th with a shot at the green. He went into the water and made double bogey, then made another double bogey on the first hole with a three-putt. It was his first time with back-to-back double bogeys since the 2011 PGA Championship. And it only got worse from there.
