Manny leaves hosts hamstrung
Second chance lifts Boston
Manny Ramirez drilled a solo homer in the ninth as the Red Sox rallied to beat the best team in baseball. Curt Schilling suffered his first blown save of 2005 when he allowed Chicago to tie, but he pitched a 1-2-3 final frame to record his first win since April 18.

Series at a glance:
White Sox cede opener
Joe Crede hit an RBI double in the eighth inning to pull the White Sox even, but a fielding miscue in the ninth proved costly. Carl Everett, Paul Konerko and Aaron Rowand each went deep, while Mark Buehrle allowed five runs (three earned) and 10 hits.
