CHICAGO, June 22 (UPI) -- Rickie Weeks singled home pinch-runner Nyjer Morgan from third with one away in the 10th inning Friday, giving Milwaukee a 1-0 win over the Chicago White Sox.

Milwaukee's Zack Greinke (8-2) gave up three hits over nine innings and claimed the victory when the Brewers scratched out a run in the 10th.

Aramis Ramirez opened the 10th with a double off Jesse Crain (1-1) and, after Nyjer came on to run, Crain uncorked a wild pitch that put Nyjer on third.

Weeks delivered his base hit on a 1-2 pitch and John Axford relieved Greinke in the bottom of the 10th to grab his 13th save.

Chicago's Chris Sale did not figure in the decision after giving up four hits and striking out seven in eight innings.

The White Sox lost for the seventh time in nine games.
