Alexei Ramirez hit his second home run of the night in the bottom of the 10th inning, lifting the host Chicago White Sox to a 6-5 win over the Oakland A's on Tuesday night.

Ramirez took a 3-1 pitch from Bobby Cramer (0-1) over the left-field wall with two outs for his third homer of the year that ended a game which had been stalemated since the sixth inning. Chris Sale (2-0) earned the win after throwing two innings of scoreless relief.

Mark Ellis doubled in a run off Edwin Jackson to give the A's a 1-0 lead in the second, but the White Sox (7-4) responded in their half with a three-run homer to left by Ramirez off Oakland ace Trevor Cahill and an RBI fielder's choice by Paul Konerko.

Oakland (5-6) rallied to within one when Hideki Matsui drove home runs in the third and fifth innings, then took a 5-4 lead in the sixth on a two-run homer by Kevin Kouzmanoff. Chicago tied it in the bottom of the inning on Juan Pierre's RBI single to center field.

Jackson allowed three runs and seven hits in 4 2/3 innings, while Cahill was tagged for four runs and six hits in 4 2/3 frames.
