CHICAGO — When is a home run not a home run?

White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu found out on Friday night. Abreu connected for what looked like his second home run of the game against Tigers reliever Reed Garrett, a three-run blast with one out in the seventh, giving the White Sox a 12-10 lead after trailing, 10-4.

But Abreu’s high drive caused Tim Anderson to go back to first base to tag up in case it was caught in left-center, and in the process, Abreu overran him at first. The Tigers challenged the play, and Abreu was ruled out. He was credited with a two-run single, making the score 11-10, and giving him four hits and five RBIs.

Detroit tied the game at 11 in the eighth on Ronny Rodriguez’s home run against Kelvin Herrera.
