Chicago White Sox
Boston Red Sox
Pinch hitter Eduardo Escobar lined an RBI single in the 10th inning and the Chicago White made it an adventuresome afternoon, beating the Milwaukee Brewers 1-0 Sunday.
The win moved the White Sox past Cleveland into the AL Central lead. Chicago also announced it had acquired All-Star infielder Kevin Youkilis and cash from Boston in a trade for infielder Brent Lillibridge and right-handed pitcher Zach Stewart.
Alejandro De Aza opened the White Sox 10th with a double off Manny Parra (0-1). Adam Dunn walked with one out and Escobar, batting for Lillibridge, singled.
Brian Bruney (1-0) walked two and struck out a pair in one inning.
Starters Michael Fiers of the Brewers and Jose Quintana of the White Sox each pitched deep into the game.
