The Tigers won for the first time midway through a 10-game road trip, which manager Jim Leyland called "good tonic."

The Tigers also snapped a seven-game road losing streak with a 5-3 win against the White Sox on Tuesday at US. Cellular Field. It was the Tigers first win on the road since Aug. 15 at Minnesota.

A pair of solo home runs gave the White Sox a 2-0 lead, before the Tigers belted two homers in the fifth to take a 3-2 lead. A couple insurance runs in the eighth helped the Tigers preserve the lead.

Over seven innings, Tigers starter Doug Fister allowed two hits -- a solo homer to Dewayne Wise in the first and to Gordon Beckham in the third.
