SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Gordon Beckham hit an RBI single with two outs in the 10th inning and the Chicago White Sox beat the San Francisco Giants 3-2 on Tuesday night after blowing a two-run lead in the ninth.
One batter after Jordan Danks was thrown out trying to score from third on a fielder’s choice, Beckham hit an 0-1 pitch from San Francisco reliever Santiago Casilla past shortstop Brandon Crawford into left field. Sierra, who entered the game as a late defensive replacement, scored easily.
Adam Dunn hit a two-run home run off Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong in the first for Chicago, which wasted another strong start by Chris Sale when reliever Jake Petricka gave up four hits in the ninth.
Beckham, who made two stellar defensive plays including one in the ninth, bailed out the White Sox bullpen with his only hit in five at-bats.
