Papelbon Blow Career Record 7th Save, Sox Swept By Chicago

White Sox walk away with 7-5 win over Red Sox

BOSTON (AP) – Gordon Beckham's bases-loaded walk with two outs

pushed Chicago ahead in a four-run ninth inning that lifted the

White Sox to their sixth straight win and an improbable 7-5

comeback victory over the Boston Red Sox on Sunday.

The win completed a sweep of the three-game weekend series and

came after Chicago trailed 5-3 entering the ninth inning and had

two outs.

Victor Martinez had a two-run homer for the Red Sox, who lost

both games of a day-night doubleheader by 3-1 scores on Saturday.

Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon (5-6) was one out away from the

save, but Carlos Quentin's bloop RBI double to center cut the score

to 5-4 before Ramon Castro tied it with a single.
