Rays lose with chance to sweep White Sox
CHICAGO (AP) -- Alexei Ramirez singled home the winning run in the 10th inning after A.J. Pierzynski's bizarre trip around the bases, and the Chicago White Sox rallied past the Tampa Bay Rays 6-5 on Sunday to avoid a three-game sweep.
Jim Thome hit his 534th homer, and the White Sox tied it at 5 in the ninth on pinch-hitter Paul Konerko's two-out single off fill-in closer Dan Wheeler. Ken Griffey Jr. started the rally with a one-out double.
