Red Sox force extra innings, top White Sox in 10

Red Sox white Sox

Jamie Westbrook and Rob Refsnyder drove in 10th-inning runs to help the visiting Boston Red Sox rally for a 6-4 win against the Chicago White Sox on Sunday.

Refsnyder and David Hamilton had two hits apiece for the Red Sox, who earned a split of the four-game series.

Paul DeJong and Corey Julks contributed two hits each for Chicago. DeJong belted a three-run home run in the fourth to give the White Sox a 3-1 lead. Gavin Sheets delivered a go-ahead, opposite-field single to left in the seventh, but the Chicago bullpen was unable to maintain the lead.

Tanner Banks blew a save opportunity for Chicago in the ninth. Hamilton hit a leadoff double, stole third base and scored on a Reese McGuire RBI sacrifice fly.

Michael Soroka (0-7) took the loss, allowing two hits and a pair of unearned runs in the 10th while striking out two. Soroka dropped the ball on a throw to first base at the start of the inning, giving the Red Sox runners on the corners with no outs.

Boston pitched a bullpen game, with seven relievers beginning with Zack Kelly combining to scatter seven hits with four walks and 17 strikeouts.

Kenley Jansen improved to 2-1 after pitching two innings of one-run ball with five strikeouts. Cam Booser picked up the save, striking out two in the 10th.

White Sox starter Chris Flexen took a no-decision after scattering two runs and two hits in five innings with two walks and three strikeouts.

Flexen retired the first nine Red Sox before Jarren Duran lined a triple to right field to lead off the fourth inning. Enmanuel Valdez worked a walk before Refsnyder grounded into a double play to drive in the game’s first run.

Chicago answered in the bottom half. A trio of Red Sox errors helped put two runners aboard ahead of DeJong, who connected for a three-run homer against Justin Slaten. DeJong, who has a team-best 12 home runs, has gone deep in three of the past five games.

Hamilton smacked a solo shot against Flexen to draw the Red Sox within 3-2 in the fifth. Boston tied the game on Garrett Cooper’s run-scoring groundout one inning later.

Boston third baseman Rafael Devers (knee) was held out of the lineup.
