Hamilton homers and Red Sox rally for 6-4 win over White Sox in 10 innings

CHICAGO (AP) — David Hamilton homered and doubled to help the Boston Red Sox rally past the Chicago White Sox 6-4 in 10 innings Sunday.

Jarren Duran reached on an error by reliever Michael Soroka (0-7) in the 10th, and Ceddanne Rafaela scored on Jamie Westbrook’s sacrifice fly. Rob Refsnyder singled to bring in another run as Boston (33-33) returned to .500.

Kenley Jansen (2-1) struck out five in two innings for the win. Cam Booser fanned two in the bottom of the 10th for his first career save.

Paul DeJong hit a three-run homer and doubled for the White Sox, who had won two straight after a franchise-record 14-game losing streak.

Corey Julks also had two hits for Chicago, which is a major league-worst 17-49. The White Sox have not won more than two consecutive since May 8-11 against Tampa Bay and Cleveland.

Hamilton doubled and scored on Reese McGuire’s sacrifice fly off Tanner Banks to tie it 4-all in the ninth.

The White Sox went ahead 4-3 in the seventh. Julks led off with a double, and pinch-runner Duke Ellis scored on a single by Gavin Sheets.

Duran, who scored three times, walked and came home on a groundout to tie it at 3 in the sixth.

DeJong’s three-run shot put the White Sox ahead after the Red Sox committed three errors in the fourth. Sheets reached on an error when pitcher Justin Slaten tried to cover first, advanced on Hamilton’s fielding gaffe at shortstop and moved to third on McGuire’s botched pickoff attempt from behind the plate before DeJong’s 12th homer of the season.

The Red Sox also had an eventful play in the sixth. DeJong reached on a ground-rule double when a flyball bounced past left fielder Duran and center fielder Rafaela on a windy day.

Hamilton hit his third homer in the fifth.

Duran led off the fourth with his major league-leading 10th triple and scored on a double play for a 1-0 Boston lead. He has the most triples in a Red Sox season since Jacoby Ellsbury’s 10 in 2009.

Chris Flexen allowed two runs in five innings for Chicago.

Zack Kelly struck out three in two scoreless innings in his first career start on a Red Sox bullpen day.


The White Sox plan to bring up right-hander Drew Thorpe from Double-A Birmingham to make his major league debut Tuesday at Seattle. Thorpe, one of the team’s top prospects, was acquired from San Diego in the Dylan Cease trade in March.

“He’s a strike-thrower, he’s a competitor, he’s got a plus-plus-plus changeup,” manager Pedro Grifol said.

The 23-year-old Thorpe is 7-1 with a 1.35 ERA in 11 starts with Birmingham. He has 56 strikeouts and 17 walks in 60 innings.

Thorpe was traded from the New York Yankees to San Diego in the Juan Soto deal in December.

Also on Sunday, the White Sox optioned right-hander Nick Nastrini to Triple-A Charlotte, brought up left-hander Sammy Peralta from Charlotte and designated left-hander Shane Drohan for assignment.


Red Sox: 3B Rafael Devers (left knee) and OF Tyler O’Neill (right knee) were out of the lineup. Devers was lifted for a pinch hitter in the eighth inning Saturday. Manager Alex Cora said he hopes Devers will be ready Tuesday against Philadelphia. O’Neill was expected to rest this weekend after he exited Friday’s game. ... DH/OF Masataka Yoshida (strained left thumb) will likely be activated from the injured list after Wednesday, Cora said. … INF/OF Romy Gonzalez (left hamstring strain) could begin a rehab assignment Tuesday, Cora said. … OF Wilyer Abreu (right ankle sprain) is progressing well and likely to go on a rehab assignment.


Red Sox: RHP Kutter Crawford (2-5, 3.51 ERA) is set to start Tuesday against Philadelphia and RHP Zack Wheeler (7-3, 2.23).

White Sox: RHP Erick Fedde (4-1, 3.27 ERA) is scheduled to pitch Monday at Seattle. RHP Logan Gilbert (3-4, 3.12) will start for the Mariners.
