DETROIT -

Erik Johnson pitched into the seventh inning in his fourth career start, and the Chicago White Sox beat Detroit 6-3 to end any chance of the Tigers clinching the AL Central title in their home finale Sunday.
 
   Detroit needed a win and a Cleveland loss to wrap up the division in the Tigers' final scheduled home game.
 
   Johnson (2-2) allowed two runs and nine hits in 6 2-3 innings, and Chicago held on a day after blowing a six-run lead in the ninth inning against the Tigers.
 
   Anibal Sanchez (14-8) yielded four runs and eight hits in five innings, taking his first loss since July 19.
 
   Prince Fielder homered for the Tigers. Detroit was without slugger Miguel Cabrera, who has been bothered by groin soreness.
