Yoan Moncada scored the go-ahead run all the way from first on a single by Jose Abreu and the visiting Chicago White Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 2-1 in 11 innings on Saturday, sending the Rays to their fifth straight loss.
Chicago was down to its final out when James McCann homered off Emilio Pagan to tie it 1-1 in the ninth.
Moncada led off the 11th with a walk against Adam Kolarek (3-3). Chaz Roe came on to face Abreu and Moncada broke from first on a 2-1 pitch. Abreu sent a slow bouncer to right field and Moncada came all the way around to score.
Jace Fry (2-4) pitched one inning for the win and Alex Colome earned his 21st save.
Avisail Garcia homered for the Rays' run.
Garcia's 13th homer of the year came against White Sox starter Lucas Giolito and bounced off one of the banners hanging high on the back wall at Tropicana Field, a projected 459-foot blast, according to Statcast.
Giolito bounced back after giving up nine earned runs over 10 innings in his past two starts. He allowed one run on seven hits in 6 2/3 innings, striking out nine and walking one.
Austin Meadows and Joey Wendle had two hits each for the Rays, who have scored just six runs over their past four games. The Rays got the leadoff runner on base in seven straight innings but scored only when Garcia homered.
After carrying a potential combined perfect game into the ninth inning before allowing a run July 14 in Baltimore, Rays starter Ryan Yarbrough retired the first 12 White Sox batters before McCann led off the fifth inning with a single.
Yarbrough allowed two hits in six innings and struck out five without a walk.
Garcia walked against Evan Marshall leading off the ninth and Wendle followed with a single, but Tampa Bay couldn't produce a run.
