DETROIT (AP) — Moises Sierra had four hits, and Jose Abreu and Adam Eaton added three apiece to lift the Chicago White Sox to a 7-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Thursday.

The game quickly became a secondary concern in the Motor City when the Tigers acquired star left-hander David Price from Tampa Bay in a three-team deal.

Joakim Soria (1-4) — another pitcher Detroit recently traded for — hit Paul Konerko with the bases loaded in the seventh to give the White Sox a 5-4 lead. Abreu extended his hitting streak to 20 games.

Whit Sox starter John Danks — who was the subject of trade rumors but didn’t get moved before the afternoon deadline — went five innings and allowed four runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out two.

Ronald Belisario (4-7) got the win in relief, and Jake Petricka pitched the ninth for his sixth save.
