TUCSON, March 12 (UPI) -- The Chicago White Sox took advantage of a pair of errors Tuesday to score five times in the top of the ninth inning and rally for a 9-5 victory over the Colorado Rockies.

Three runs scored on a pop-up that was misplayed by second baseman Jose Ortiz and first baseman Greg Norton. Shortstop Juan Uribe also committed an error as just two of Chicago's nine runs were earned.

Pinch hitter Carlos Lee delivered a two-run double and Magglio Ordonez and Paul Konerko each contributed three hits and an RBI for the White Sox.

Keith Foulke got the win, despite allowing a two-run homer to Mario Encarnacion in the bottom of the eighth. Chicago starter Mark Buehrle gave up three runs and five hits in five innings.

Mike Hampton yielded four unearned runs and six hits with three walks in four innings for Colorado.
