The Tigers look to extend their winning streak as they take on the White Sox Sunday, at Comerica Park.

Torii Hunter, Jhonny Peralta and Jose Iglesias each hit a home run Saturday night as the Tigers beat the White Sox for the 2nd straight game.

Hunter started things off for the Tigers in the first inning when he sent White Sox pitcher John Danks deep for his 12th home run of the season. Jhonny Peralta doubled the lead in the second inning with a solo shot to make it 2-0. Then, new Tiger Jose Iglesias gave the Tigers more of a cushion with his own home run in the 4th.

But, Max Scherzer didn't need much help Saturday night. The winningest pitcher in the league continued his stellar 2013 season.  He pitched seven innings of scoreless ball and fanned six. Scherzer is now 16-1 with 2.85 ERA this season.

The Tigers current winning streak stands at seven games.

Rick Porcello will be on the mound for the series finale Sunday as the Tigers look to remain perfect on this homestand.
