With two outs in the bottom of the ninth and Michael Brantley on second, Jason Giambi hit a 1-1 slider deep into the right field seats for the team’s 11th walk off win of the season.
The Indians had a 3-2 lead going into the top of the ninth, but closer Chris Perez gave up a pair of solo home runs to put the White Sox on top.
Giambi was pinch hitting for Matt Carson, who entered the game defensively for Michael Bourn. Bourn jammed his wrist sliding into second, and didn’t want to risk it if he would have had to try and throw a runner out at home Terry Francona told the media after the game.
