CHICAGO (AP) — Alexei Ramirez hit a two-run homer off John Axford in the ninth inning, rallying the Chicago White Sox over the Cleveland Indians 4-3 on a rainy Sunday.
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.
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 left field.
