Red Sox Waste Steven Wright’s Strong Outing, Fall To White Sox In 10 Innings
By KEN POWTAK
BOSTON (AP) – Jose Abreu doubled home two runs off Boston closer Craig Kimbrel with two outs in the top of the 10th inning after Chicago escaped a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the ninth, lifting the White Sox to a 3-1 win over the Red Sox on Monday night.
Chicago snapped a three-game losing streak and won for just the eighth time in 26 games. Boston has lost five of eight.
Zach Duke (2-0) wriggled out of the ninth to get the win. David Robertson worked the 10th for his 17th save.
Red Sox knuckleballer Steven Wright pitched nine innings, giving up only an unearned run and five hits. He struck out six and walked three while lowering his AL-best ERA to 2.01.
Abreu doubled to right-center off Kimbrel (0-3) after Avisail Garcia walked and J.B. Shuck singled.
