Ramirez hits 2-run HR in 9th, Chisox top Indians

CHICAGO (AP) Alexei Ramirez hit a two-run homer off John Axford in the ninth inning, rallying the Chicago White Sox over the Cleveland Indians 4-3 on a rainy Sunday.

The Indians scored twice in the top of the ninth, getting the go-ahead run on a wild pitch by closer Matt Lindstrom.

Axford came in seeking his fifth save in as many chances. He issued a leadoff walk to Jordan Danks, who stole second.

One out later, Ramirez homered over the left field fence.

The game was delayed 1 hour, 15 minutes at the start by the threat of rain. There was another 45-minute delay in the fourth.
