DETROIT -- Brad Ausmus pointed out Monday afternoon that no one is going to roll over and hand his Detroit Tigers the AL Central title. Timo Werner Germany Jersey . Hours later, rookie Chris Bassitt and the White Sox proved the manager right. Bassitt pitched into the eighth inning for his first major league win, Tyler Flowers hit a two-run homer and Chicago slowed Detroits playoff push with a 2-0 victory. "This is competitive athletics, and no one is just going to hand you a game," Ausmus said. "I talked about it before the game -- those guys in the other clubhouse are playing for their futures, and they are playing to win, because thats what you do in this league. Were going to have to win these last games on our own." Detroit is one game ahead of the second-place Royals, who beat Cleveland 2-0 in their regularly scheduled game Monday night. Hours earlier, the Indians finished off a victory in a suspended game against Kansas City. The loss assured Detroit would start a division series on the road, even if it wins the AL Central. "Weve got six games left, and weve got control of our fate," reliever Joba Chamberlain said. "Thats all you can ask for at this point. If we do our jobs, well win the division." The game turned into an unexpected pitchers duel between Bassitt and fellow rookie Kyle Lobstein. Both were making their fifth career start, but they looked like aces in the middle of a pennant race. Bassitt (1-1) went 7 2-3 innings and pitched out of two early jams in front of about 100 family members and friends. "The first win always means a lot, but being so close to home and having my friends and family here makes it even better," said Bassitt, who grew up in Curtice, Ohio, about an hour south of Comerica Park. "Some of my friends said they were hoping that Id get a no-decision in a Tigers win, though." Bassitt, who lost to the Tigers on Aug. 30, gave up six hits, walked one batter -- the last one he faced -- and struck out Alex Avila three times but no one else. Jake Petricka got four outs for his 14th save. "He located his pitches tonight, which he didnt really do against us the first time," Ian Kinsler said. "Every pitcher in this league is tough when they can locate their stuff." Lobstein (1-1) was trying for his second victory, but didnt get any offensive support. He allowed two runs on five hits and a walk in a career-best seven innings. Chicago took a 2-0 lead with a two-out rally in the second. Carlos Sanchez hit a ground-rule double to left-centre and, on the next pitch, Flowers lined a homer into the White Sox bullpen. "I was looking for something out over the plate," Flowers said. "If it was a fastball, I wanted to think right-centre, and if it was an off-speed pitch, I wanted to hit it to left. Thats what happened." Detroit had a pair of early threats, but Kinsler was caught stealing in the first inning -- leaving the bases empty for Miguel Cabreras 50th double. Right fielder Avisail Garcia robbed Cabrera of a probable RBI double with a sliding catch in the third. "He showed some composure out there, and he competed. That was a nice little outing for him," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said of his young pitcher. Cabrera hit another ball hard off Bassitt in the eighth, but his line drive was right at Moises Sierra in left. Victor Martinez drew a walk, and Petricka came in to strike out J.D. Martinez. "That last at-bat for Cabrera, I just didnt want to walk him," Bassitt said. "I was thinking that he might hit one off the scoreboard, but Im not going to walk him. Luckily, he hit it right at somebody." TRAINERS ROOM White Sox: OF Adam Eaton, who has missed the last two games for personal reasons, is expected to join the team in time for Tuesdays game in Detroit. Tigers: Avila (concussion) was a late addition to the lineup after the team was able to get his paperwork approved by Major League Baseball about 45 minutes before the first pitch. ... Detroit will activate RHP Anibal Sanchez (pectoral strain) from the disabled list Tuesday, and he will pitch out of the bullpen for the rest of the season. UP NEXT Detroit will try to even the series behind LHP David Price (14-12, 3.37 ERA). Scott Carroll (5-10, 5.01) goes for the White Sox. HONORING KONERKO The Tigers will honour retiring White Sox slugger Paul Konerko before Tuesdays game. Konerko has homered 18 times at Comerica Park, one fewer than David Ortiz for the most by a visiting player, and his 206 total bases are 63 more than second-place Justin Morneau. Konerko also homered off Justin Thompson at Tiger Stadium in 1999, a game caught by Ausmus. "I remember Paul when he came up with the Dodgers, but you obviously remember him most in Chicago," Ausmus said. "Hes had a lot of great years with the White Sox, and I think hell get a lot of Hall of Fame votes in a few years." Matthias Ginter Jersey . It all would have been for naught, however, had it not been for some clutch shooting in the fourth quarter by Kobe Bryant and a couple of equally critical hustle plays by Derek Fisher and Pau Gasol in the final minutes. Timo Werner Jersey . They are back to a game above .500 on the year and back to .500 on the road. It was their 10th extra time game of the year, and only the second one that did not got to a shootout. NEW YORK -- Carlos Beltran is coming back to New York, this time to the Bronx. The All-Star outfielder and the Yankees agreed Friday to a $45 million, three-year contract, two people familiar with the deal said. Beltrans agreement came hours after second baseman Robinson Cano decided to leave for Seattle and on the same day pitcher Hiroki Kuroda agreed to return for 2014. Beltrans deal was detailed to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because it was subject to a physical and had not yet been announced. The agreement was first reported by the New York Daily News. Beltran, 36, is an eight-time All-Star who played for the Mets from 2005-11, when he was dealt to San Francisco. He signned a $26 million, two-year contract with St. Marc-Andre ter Stegen Germany Jersey. . Louis before the 2012 season and reached the World Series for the first time this year. Slowed by knee injuries, Beltran has retained a potent bat -- especially in October. He hit .296 with 24 homers and 84 RBIs for the Cardinals this year and added two homers and 15 RBIs in the post-season. Beltran injured ribs in the World Series opener when he banged into Fenway Parks right-fight fence while robbing Bostons David Ortiz of a grand slam. Beltran joins a crowded Yankees outfield. Brett Gardner, Ichiro Suzuki and Alfonso Soriano are set to return, and Jacoby Ellsbury has a $153 million, seven-year deal pending.
