Buck Farmer struck out 11 White Sox over 6 1/3 scoreless innings to help the Tigers salvage a split in Saturday's doubleheader with a 4-3 win in the nightcap.

Making what was supposed to be a spot start as the team's 26th man for the doubleheader, Farmer may have forced the club to make a tough decision with his dominant performance. He gave up just three hits, all singles, while walking two over his 6 1/3 innings, then watched as the Sox tried to mount a comeback in the ninth to deny him of the win. Assuming the Tigers find reason to keep him around -- and given their rotation struggles, it's not hard to see how they might -- Farmer might get another shot at the White Sox when the two clubs meet next weekend.

Brock Stewart (shoulder) lasted just 1/3 of an inning Saturday in a rehab start for High-A Rancho Cucamonga.

He let up three hits, three runs (two earned) and a walk before exiting. Stewart threw 17 of his 23 pitches for strikes and finished with one strikeout. It obviously wasn't the outing Stewart was hoping for, but at least he came out of healthy. His fastball reportedly topped out at 95 mph. Stewart will likely need a couple more outings before he's ready to join the Dodgers.

Buck Farmer struck out 11 batters in 6 1/3 scoreless innings to beat the White Sox 4-3 on Saturday.

He allowed just three hits and two walks in the dominant outing. Farmer has been in the majors off and on since 2014 but this was his first major league win. He was called up to make a spot start in this doubleheader and made a strong case to be allowed to stick around. He had a 4.12 ERA in nine starts at Triple-A before getting the call.

Derek Holland limited the Tigers to one run over six innings but took the loss in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader.

Holland wasn't overly sharp, scattering seven hits and four walks, but he kept the Tigers in check for most of the evening. In fact, the one run they did manage to scrape across was on a solo homer by John Hicks. On the plus side, he did strike out eight, a season high. The southpaw has been very good as a member of the Sox, posting a 2.37 ERA and 1.24 WHIP through 10 starts this season. He'll have his shot at revenge Friday when the White Sox and Tigers get together again.

Justin Wilson gave up three runs in a non-save situation against the White Sox on Saturday.

He was called upon to protect a 4-0 lead in the ninth inning and nearly blew it. A Tim Anderson single plated the first run, then Yolmer Sanchez tripled in two more to make the score 4-3. Wilson was confronted with the tying run on third base and only one out, but he was able to strike out the next two batters to extinguish the threat. The bad outing caused his ERA to rise from 1.89 to 3.15 in one swoop. He has three saves since taking over as the Tigers' closer from Francisco Rodriguez. Wilson has racked up a stellar 33 strikeouts (including three today) and just five walks in 20 innings of work.

Victor Martinez went 2-for-3 with a home run and a pair of walks in Saturday's nightcap against the White Sox.

Amazingly, V-Mart walked five times over the course of the two games in Saturday's doubleheader. He also connected for the solo homer in the ninth inning, his fourth of the year. It's not flashy, but the 38-year-old is having a decent year at the plate thus far, hitting .264/.350/.384 in 44 games.

Brandon McCarthy left Saturday's game against the Cubs with right knee tendinitis.

He's headed for an MRI. McCarthy started feeling discomfort in the fourth inning but went another two innings before getting the hook from manager Dave Roberts. The right-hander pitched in a win over the Cubs, scattering two hits and one walk over six shutout innings. If McCarthy lands on the disabled list, Hyun-Jin Ryu and Julio Urias would be candidates to replace him in the starting rotation.

Victor Martinez went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in the second game of a double header against the White Sox on Saturday.

His longball in the ninth inning seemed like an insurance run at the time as it gave his club a 4-0 lead with half an inning to go. But the White Sox would score three runs in the bottom of the ninth and Martinez' home run ended up being the deciding factor in the ballgame. He also walked twice in the contest. He walked three times in the first game and reached base in seven of nine plate appearances on the day. He is batting .264/.350/.387 with four homers and 25 RBI in 44 games.
