Rios Walk-Off Homer In 10th Lifts White Sox Over Angels

CHICAGO (AP) — Alex Rios hit his second homer of the game, connecting for a two-run shot in the 10th inning Friday night that lifted the Chicago White Sox over the Los Angeles Angels 8-6.

Rios also hit a solo homer as the White Sox won their third in a row. The Angels lost their third straight, with starter Zack Greinke roughed up in his second start for his new team.

Adam Dunn singled off Hisanori Takahashi (0-3) to open the 10th. Pinch runner Jordan Danks stole second with one out before Rios hit his 18th home run.

Matt Thornton (4-6) pitched a scoreless 10th.

A.J. Pierzynski’s three-run homer highlighted a four-run first. Greinke allowed six runs and 10 hits over seven innings.

Albert Pujols and Mike Trout homered for the Angels.
