CHICAGO (AP) - Travis Shaw hit a tiebreaking single in the 10th inning after belting a three-run homer in the third, and the Boston Red Sox beat the Chicago White Sox 9-8.
Filling in with J.D. Martinez scratched from the lineup, Shaw capped a seven-run third with a drive that made it 7-2 and chased Chicago starter Dylan Cease.
The AL Central-leading White Sox tied it with five in the fourth and took an 8-7 lead in the fifth when Yasmani Grandal homered off Ryan Brasier.
Boston tied it in the eighth on Enrique Hernández’s sacrifice fly against Craig Kimbrel.
Alex Verdugo started the 10th on second and moved up on Bobby Dalbec’s grounder to first.
Shaw then lined a tiebreaking single to right against Mike Wright (0-1).
