Outhitting Boston wasn't quite enough for the Chicago White Sox to avoid a three-game sweep against the Red Sox.
Chicago finished with 11 hits, but the White Sox also walked eight, matching Boston's hit total as the Red Sox held off the White Sox 7-6 on Sunday.
''You put guys on with these guys and you're just asking for trouble. They can hit. They can work at-bats,'' manager Robin Ventura said. ''When you're just putting them on base, it becomes a long haul and they make you pay for it.''
Ventura had to watch the end from the clubhouse after getting ejected in the fourth for arguing a call at third base that led to a run for Boston.
With Jacoby Ellsbury on third and one out, Dustin Pedroia hit a line drive that third baseman Conor Gillaspie made what looked like a diving grab on, but the ball dropped out of his glove as he stretched trying to double-up Ellsbury. Gillaspie then got up and fired to first, bouncing one wild as the run scored and Pedroia advanced to second.
