White Sox Rally in 8th to Win 9th Straight
CHICAGO (AP) -- Alexei Ramirez drove in the go-ahead run with a two-out infield single in the eighth inning Friday night and the Chicago White Sox beat the Seattle Mariners 7-4 for their ninth straight win.

The White Sox scored three times in the eighth, helped by a Mariners misplay.

Paul Konerko led off with a fly and the ball glanced off center fielder Michael Saunders' glove and then hit him for a two-base error.

With two outs and runners at the corners, Ramirez hit a slow grounder to shortstop Brendan Ryan and beat the throw as pinch-runner Brent Lillibridge scored. Alejandro De Aza added a two-run single.

Addison Reed pitched the ninth for his seventh save in as many chances.

Jesse Crain (1-0) got the win. Shawn Kelly (0-2) took the loss.
