White Sox get 1-0 Win in 10th, Trade for Youkilis
CHICAGO (AP) -- Pinch hitter Eduardo Escobar lined an RBI single in the 10th inning and the Chicago White made it an adventuresome afternoon, beating the Milwaukee Brewers 1-0 Sunday.

The win moved the White Sox past Cleveland into the AL Central lead. Chicago also announced it had acquired All-Star infielder Kevin Youkilis and cash from Boston in a trade for infielder Brent Lillibridge and right-handed pitcher Zach Stewart.

Alejandro De Aza opened the White Sox 10th with a double off Manny Parra (0-2). Adam Dunn walked with one out and Escobar, batting for Lillibridge, singled.

Brian Bruney (1-0) walked two and struck out a pair in one inning.

Starters Michael Fiers of the Brewers and Jose Quintana of the White Sox each pitched deep into the game.
