Anibal Sanchez struck out 10 in a terrific performance, helping the Detroit Tigers top the Chicago White Sox 1-0 on Wednesday night.
Sanchez (14-7) allowed five hits and walked four in 7 1-3 innings while lowering his AL-best ERA to 2.50. Joaquin Benoit got three outs for his 18th save in 18 opportunities, completing a five-hitter for Detroit's 11th shutout of the season.
Omar Infante drove in the game's only run with a two-out single against Matt Lindstrom (2-4) in the eighth inning.
White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana pitched seven innings of five-hit ball.
BEST OF MAXIM
Anibal Sanchez could quite possibly be the best pitcher in the major leagues who is never mentioned. I’m not sure I’ve ever heard Sanchez mentioned in the same breath as teammates Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander; much less in the same instance as Felix Hernandez, Clayton Kershaw, and Adam Wainwright. In my opinion, he belongs there.

The Detroit Tigers are keeping the Jhonny Peralta fire lit, and for good reason. Peralta risked exiling himself from the organization the moment he cheated back in the spring of 2012.

There were a lot of people who weren't sold on the Tigers re-signing Anibal Sanchez in the offseason.
The critics thought that paying Sanchez 80 million over five years was too much.
Those same people are probably rethinking that opinion.
