Phils split double-header against Chicago
White Sox 5, Phillies 4, 11 innings, 1st game
Alexei Ramirez hit a tiebreaking double in the 11th inning to lift the Chicago White Sox over the Philadelphia Phillies 5-4 in the opener of a day-night doubleheader Saturday.
After a 41-minute rain delay following the top of the ninth, White Sox righty Nate Jones escaped a no-out, second-and-third jam in the bottom half.
The teams were forced to play two after Friday night's interleague game was rained out.
Alejandro De Aza hit a two-out triple off J.C. Ramirez (0-1) in the 11th and Ramirez followed with a liner to right-center for his fourth hit.
Ramirez then scored when shortstop Jimmy Rollins booted Alex Rios' grounder for an error.
Phillies 2, White Sox 1, 13 innings, 2nd game
Michael Young hit an RBI single with two outs in the 13th inning to lift Philadelphia to a 2-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox, giving the Phillies a split of a day-night doubleheader Saturday.
John Mayberry Jr. hit a tying, solo homer in the seventh off Hector Santiago, and All-Star Domonic Brown threw out Jeff Keppinger trying to score from second on Tyler Flowers' single to left to end the top half of the 11th.
Simon Castro (0-1) walked Humberto Quintero leading off the bottom of the 13th and Jimmy Rollins then reached on a fielder's choice.
He advanced on Joe Savery's sacrifice and scored on Young's hit to right, sliding headfirst just ahead of Casper Wells' strong throw to the plate.
