Ramirez hits 2-run HR in 9th, Chisox top Indians
CHI WHITE SOX 4, CLEVELAND 3

By ROBERT QUESENBERY
Associated Press

CHICAGO (AP) -- Alexei Ramirez came up to the plate, ready to
swing.

Ramirez hit a two-run homer on the first pitch he saw from John
Axford in the ninth inning, rallying the Chicago White Sox over
the Cleveland Indians 4-3 on a rainy Sunday.

"Everybody knows me as an aggressive hitter," Ramirez said
through a translator. "I'm going to go looking for a good pitch
to hit and when I get it, I'm going to swing at it. And that's
what happened, I got a good pitch."

"(Axford is) definitely a really good pitcher and he just left
me a pitch up there and I was able to put a good swing on it,"
he said.

Ramirez has a hit in all 13 games for the White Sox this season.

The Indians scored twice in the top of the ninth, getting the
go-ahead run on a wild pitch by closer Matt Lindstrom.

Axford (0-1) came in seeking his fifth save in as many chances.
He issued a leadoff walk to Jordan Danks, who stole second.

One out later, Ramirez homered over the left field fence.

The White Sox won a series against Cleveland for the first time
since October 2012. Chicago took three of four in this set.

The game was delayed 1 hour, 15 minutes at the start by the
threat of rain. There was another 45-minute delay in the fourth.

Cleveland trailed 2-1 going into the ninth. Michael Brantley
reached on first base Jose Abreu's error, and singles by Yan
Gomes and David Murphy tied it.

"Try to have a solid at-bat. There's a lot of things you can do
to be productive right there, at least get that runner at second
to third," Murphy said.

With two outs, Lindstrom (1-1) threw a wild pitch that put the
Indians ahead.

Marcus Semien hit a solo home run in the eighth to give Chicago
a 2-1 lead. He sent a full-count pitch from Indians starter
Corey Kluber into the seats in right field.

Brantley gave Cleveland a 1-0 lead with two outs in the fourth
when he homered off Jose Quintana.

The White Sox tied the game in the bottom half after the rain
delay. With runners on second and third, Dayan Viciedo drove in
a run with an infield single.

Quintana gave up one run and five hits over six innings. He
struck out six and walked two while throwing a career-high 121
pitches.

"When he goes out there he always gives us a chance to win,"
manager Robin Ventura said. "That's the one thing about Q, very
rarely is he out there in his game and he doesn't give you a
chance to win."

NOTES: Ventura says OF Avisail Garcia will have season-ending
shoulder surgery on Tuesday. He was injured Wednesday at
Colorado on a diving-catch attempt. . Chicago 2B Gordon Beckham
(strained left oblique) was cleared to resume his rehab
assignment with Double-A Birmingham. ... Chicago is off Monday
before concluding its seven-game homestand with three games
against the Boston Red Sox beginning Tuesday. Rookie Erik
Johnson (0-1, 9.58 ERA) is scheduled to face former White Sox
righty Jake Peavy (0-0, 2.13 ERA) in the opener. ... The Indians
reinstated 3B Lonnie Chisenhall from the paternity list and
optioned Justin Sellers back to Triple-A Columbus. Chisenhall's
second son, Cannon, was born Thursday. ... Cleveland is off
Monday before beginning a three-game series at Detroit on
Tuesday with right-hander Zach McAllister (1-0, 2.31 ERA)
scheduled to face Anibal Sanchez (0-0, 3.00 ERA).
