Ross' 3-run HR in 9th Wins it for Red Sox
BOSTON (AP) -- Cody Ross hit a three-run homer with one out in the bottom of the ninth to give the Boston Red Sox a 3-1 win over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night.

It came one night after Ross hit three-run homers in consecutive innings of a 10-1 win.

Boston took three of four games in the series and is 5-2 since the All Star break.

It was the fifth loss in 13 games for AL Central-leading Chicago, which opens three-game series at second-place Detroit on Friday night.

Matt Thornton (2-6) got one out, but left with runners on first and second before Addison Reed faced Ross, who hit a 1-1 pitch into the Green Monster seats.
