CHICAGO (AP) — Carlos Rodón struck out a career-high 12 in six innings and the Chicago White Sox beat Detroit 3-1 in a doubleheader opener, the Tigers’ 11th loss in 13 games.

Rodón made his first home start since pitching a no-hitter against Cleveland on April 14. He allowed two hits and walked one, and his ERA rose from 0.48 to 0.72.

Rodón gave up a run in the fourth, just his second earned run allowed this season, when Robbie Grossman singled leading off, stole second and came home on Jonathan Schoop’s two-out double.
