CHICAGO (July 4, 2012) -- Kevin Youkilis hit a game-ending RBI single in the bottom of the 10th inning to lift the Chicago White Sox to a 5-4 win over the Texas Rangers on Wednesday night.
In the 10th inning, Alejandro De Aza, who fouled a ball off his right knee during the at-bat, led off the inning with a walk against Rangers reliever Mike Adams (1-3) then stole second. On the ninth pitch, Youkilis ended the game with an RBI single to score De Aza and prompting the crowd to "Youk", who was acquired in a trade from the Red Sox on June 24.
Josh Hamilton homered for the Rangers, who had won their previous seven series.
Addison Reed (2-1) pitched a scoreless 10th inning to earn the win for the White Sox.
