Beckham Scores Game Winner For White Sox On Wild Pitch

Last updated on Wednesday, May 18, 2011

(CHICAGO, IL) - Gordon Beckham scored the go-ahead run on a wild pitch in the eighth as the Chicago White Sox got past the Texas Rangers 4-3.

The Rangers scored single runs in the first, second and fourth innings to grab a 3-0 lead.

White Sox third baseman Brent Morel tied it with his first home run of the season, a three-run blast off Texas starter Matt Harrison in the fifth.

Beckham led off the bottom of the eighth with a walk off rangers reliever Cody Eppley and advanced to third on Dallas McPherson's pinch-hit single.

Eppley then bounced a pitch to Alexei Ramirez with Beckham rushing home with the eventual game-winner.
