CHICAGO (AP) — Alexei Ramirez singled in the winning run in the bottom of the ninth after Chicago committed a costly error in the top half of the inning, and Chris Sale struck out 13 batters in eight innings to lead the White Sox over the New York Mets 5-4 on Tuesday night.

The Mets scored the tying run with two outs in the ninth on a defensive miscue.

Pinch hitter Daniel Murphy hit a popup in front of the mound and third baseman Conor Gillaspie called for the ball before second baseman Gordon Beckham tried to make the catch as they nearly collided. The ball fell for an error by Beckham and David Wright scored the tying run from second after he had singled and stole second.

LaTroy Hawkins (2-1) took the loss, while Addison Reed (3-0) got the victory after blowing his third save.
