CHICAGO -- Monday's comeback victory may have just been one in the win column for the Chicago White Sox, but they're hopeful it'll mean much more down the road.

The White Sox fought back from a 5-2 deficit with five runs in the final four innings and six shutout innings from the bullpen to defeat the Tigers 7-5 on Monday.

“It's big,” White Sox reliever Zach Stewart said on Monday. “Hopefully, we can build on this and take this into (Tuesday) and the series to come. It's a good team. It's definitely a team in the division we have to do well against.”

The White Sox will look to sweep the two-game series behind team ace Jake Peavy (4-1, 1.89) on Tuesday. Max Scherzer (2-3, 5.73) will start for the Tigers.


Here's the White Sox's lineup for Tuesday:
1. Alejandro De Aza – CF
2. Gordon Beckham – 2B
3. Adam Dunn – DH
4. Paul Konerko – 1B
5. A.J. Pierzynski -- C
6. Alex Rios – RF
7. Alexei Ramirez – SS
8. Dayan Viciedo – LF
9. Brent Morel – 3B
