Ramirez's HR Lifts White Sox Over Rangers
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Alexei Ramirez hit a go-ahead, two-run homer in the sixth inning to lead the Chicago White Sox to a 5-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Sunday night.

Paul Konerko and Carlos Quentin hit back-to-back doubles in the sixth to tie it at 3 for Chicago. Two outs later, Ramirez lined a homer off starter Scott Feldman (5-8).

Mark Buehrle (7-7) won for the fourth time in five starts to even his record for the first time since April 21. He allowed three runs -- including homers by Josh Hamilton and Julio Borbon -- and five hits over seven innings to improve his career record against Texas to 12-5.

Matt Thornton, who earned his first All-Star berth, got three outs for his fifth save in seven chances.
