Sox come up clutch in 9th to take series from White Sox

CHICAGO (AP) - Jon Lester pitched eight sharp innings and David Ross hit a tiebreaking RBI double in Boston's two-run ninth, leading the Red Sox to a 3-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night.

Lester (2-2) allowed one run and seven hits for his second straight win after opening the season with two losses. The left-hander struck out nine and walked none, winning an impressive pitcher's duel with White Sox ace Chris Sale.

Lester retired his first 16 batters before Tyler Flowers singled in the sixth. Xander Bogaerts homered in the sixth for Boston's only hit off Sale.
