Alexei Ramirez spread his arms wide and raced around the bases like a little kid. The White Sox would play one more day. Ramirez set a rookie record with his fourth grand slam of the season, and Chicago beat Detroit 8-2 in a rainout makeup today, forcing a one-game tiebreaker against Minnesota for the AL Central title, the AP reports.
The Twins will visit the White Sox tomorrow night, with John Danks starting for Chicago on 3 days' rest against Nick Blackburn. The division champ begins the playoffs at Tampa Bay on Thursday. A day after the regular season ended for everyone else, the White Sox and Twins find themselves tied at 88-74.
