Alexei Ramirez scored from second on shortstop Xander Bogaerts' throwing error in the bottom of the ninth, lifting the Chicago White Sox over the Boston Red Sox, 2-1, in the opener of a three-game series.
Burke Badenhop (0-2), who recorded the final out in the eighth, stayed on to start the ninth for Boston. After Alejandro De Aza was caught stealing second, Ramirez singled to left. Badenhop got Tyler Flowers to go down looking before handing the ball over to Chris Capuano, who walked Adam Eaton. Marcus Semien then hit a grounder to Bogaerts, whose errant throw to first allowed the game- winning run to score.
