Escobar’s hit help Sox take series
CHICAGO – The lack of clutch hitting has plagued the White Sox in June. And even after failing to capitalize on key opportunities Sunday, they managed a rare walk-off victory in extra innings, leaping the Indians for the division lead.
Pinch-hitter Eduardo Escobar drove in Alejandro De Aza for the game’s only run, giving the Sox (38-34) their first series win since June 3 against Seattle. Brian Bruney recorded his first win of the season. The Brewers’ Manny Parra (0-2) took the loss.
“I just think it was good to win a series,” Sox first baseman Paul Konerko said. “Those were three real hard fought games. … It was a dogfight all the way. That series could have gone either way.”
