Sac Fly Gives White Sox 9-8 Win in 14
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Kevin Youkilis hit a sacrifice fly in the 14th inning, and the Chicago White Sox outlasted the Kansas City Royals 9-8 to win a game that stretched into the wee hours of Saturday morning.

Gordon Beckham drew a one-out walk off Everett Teaford (1-3) to start the winning rally, and Alejandro De Aza sent a single down the third-base line to put runners on the corners. On the 14th pitch of his at-bat, Youkilis managed to send a fly ball to deep center field.

Youkilis has five game-winning hits in 14 games with the White Sox.

Dylan Axelrod (1-2) worked around trouble in the 13th for Chicago, and then retired the side in the 14th to end a game that lasted 5 hours, 23 minutes.
