Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Jeff Keppinger's bases-loaded single plated
Tyler Greene with the winning run in the 11th inning to lift the Chicago White
Sox to a 4-3 win over the Miami Marlins.
John Danks received a standing ovation following his pitching performance of
six-plus innings. The right-hander, who made his first start in more than a
year, allowed four hits and three runs and fanned five.
Nate Jones (1-4) recorded the final two outs of the top of the 11th inning,
and the White Sox, who were seemingly robbed of the win a frame earlier,
loaded the bases against Ryan Webb (1-2).
Paul Konerko singled with one out and was lifted for Greene in a pinch-running
situation. Dayan Viciedo singled to right off the glove of a diving second
baseman Derek Dietrich. With runners at the corners, the Marlins elected to
intentionally walk Conor Gillaspie. Keppinger then hit a sharp grounder beyond
a diving Placido Polanco into left field to cap the opener of this three-game
Alex Rios singled in the sixth inning to extend his career-high hitting streak
to 18 games for the White Sox, who have won three of their last four games.
Dietrich belted a two-run homer in the fourth inning, but the Marlins lost for
the 10th time in their last 13 games.
