Recap

Alex Rios belted a walk-off grand slam with one out in the 10th inning as the Chicago White Sox recorded a 7-3 win over the visiting Cleveland Indians on Saturday.
 
Rios turned on the first pitch from Chris Perez (3-7) to end a frustrating day for Chicago on a positive note. The White Sox left the bases loaded four times - including in the eighth and ninth innings - and stranded 15 runners. Chicago was 3-for-15 with runners in scoring position.
 
Sergio Santos (4-4) pitched the 10th for the win.
 
Juan Pierre stretched his hit to right field into a double to start the 10th inning. After Alexei Ramirez popped up his sacrifice attempt, Paul Konerko was intentionally walked. Tyler Flowers walked to load the bases, the 11th walk issued by Cleveland pitchers.
 
Shelley Duncan's leadoff homer in the seventh tied the game.
 
Philip Humber, who was hit in the head by a line drive against Cleveland last month, gave up two runs in six innings.
 
Fausto Carmona allowed three runs in 5 1/3 innings. He has given up 10 runs in 6 2/3 innings in his last two starts.
 
Pierre had an RBI single and threw out a runner at the plate.
 
Grady Sizemore is 0-for-15 in four games since returning from the disabled list.
