Late Rally by White Sox Secures Win
The Chicago (A) White Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays, 8-3, at Tropicana Field. The win was largely due to the efforts of center fielder Nick Buckner, who captured player of the game honors. He went 2-4 with 2 doubles and a walk, while adding 3 RBI and scoring once. Chicago (A) reliever Juan Vélez picked up the win, upping his record to 6-6. Sergio Cruz was saddled with the loss. The White Sox have an impressive 69-44 record.

Derek Williams's hit in the top of the ninth was a game-changer. With two out, he rapped a fastball from Sergio Cruz for a run-scoring single. It put Chicago (A) in front, 4-3.

"I'm trying to keep it simple," said Williams. "Just do my job."
