Jim Thome hit an RBI double in the sixth inning for the White Sox's only hit off Dontrelle Willis, and Chicago beat the Detroit Tigers 5-3 Saturday. Detroit, the only winless team in the major leagues, is 0-5 for the first time since the Tigers dropped their first nine games in 2003 en route to an AL-record 119 losses. Willis walked seven in his Tigers debut.
The former Florida Marlins ace gave up three runs in the White Sox's four-run sixth.
Brandon Inge drove in all of Detroit's runs with a two-run homer and RBI double. Taking a no-hit bid into the sixth, Willis walked Nick Swisher and Orlando Cabrera leading off, then Thome doubled off the base of the left-field wall for the first run.
