John Danks had plenty of trouble even with a watered-down Detroit Tigers lineup. Danks gave up homers to Prince Fielder, Austin Jackson and Torii Hunter, and the Tigers overpowered the Chicago White Sox in a 6-2 victory on Wednesday night. Anibal Sanchez pitched six scoreless innings against Chicago to help Detroit win, despite missing top-hitter Miguel Cabrera. Cabrera, the reigning AL MVP and baseball's first Triple Crown winner in 45 years last season, left Monday's game in the bottom of the fifth inning with a left hip flexor injury. He hasn't played since and might sit out Thursday, too, when the Tigers go for a four-game sweep. Danks (2-8) lost his second straight start and is winless since July 2. He worked seven innings and gave up six runs and 11 hits - including three home runs. Danks is 4-8 against Detroit. ''It falls squarely on me. This is no one else's fault. It was just one of those nights. There is no other way to explain it, just wasn...
