Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks gave up three runs and seven hits in six innings, snapping a career-high three game losing streak. Brandon Morrow got the last three outs for his 16th save in 17 chances. Chicago trailed 2-0 and then 3-2 before Kyle Schwarber's RBI single in the fifth tied the score and Happ's double in the seventh put the Cubs ahead.

CHICAGO (AP) - Nicholas Castellanos homered twice and Jose Iglesias hit a tiebreaking RBI single in Detroit's two-run eighth, helping the Tigers beat the Chicago White Sox 7-5 for their fourth straight win. Castellanos hit a three-run drive in the third and a two-run shot in the fifth. It was his first multihomer game since Aug. 22 against the Yankees and No. 4 for his career.
