Detroit — Just when it appeared the season for Tigers starter Jordan Zimmermann couldn’t get much worse, the Chicago White Sox attached tangible humiliation to Friday night’s defeat.

The White Sox hung up nine earned runs on Zimmermann (1-12, 6.85 ERA), the most in any of the 272 starts during his 11-year major-league career, en route to a 10-1 win over the Tigers at Comerica Park.

The loss kicked off a six-game homestand for Detroit, its last of the season, and was the first of seven meetings between the Tigers (45-108) and White Sox (67-86) through Sept.
