Greinke, Brewers beat White Sox 1-0 in 10
Rickie Weeks drove in lone run
CHICAGO — Zack Greinke pitched three-hit ball over nine innings, Rickie Weeks drove in the lone run with a single in the 10th and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Chicago White Sox 1-0 on Friday night.
The Brewers finally pulled out a close win after dropping five of the previous nine by one run, thanks to one dominant pitching performance and one clutch hit.
Aramis Ramirez led off the 10th by lining his second double of the game down the left-field line against Jesse Crain (1-1). Nyjer Morgan ran for him and advanced on a wild pitch before Weeks drove a single past a diving third baseman Orlando Hudson to make it 1-0.
Greinke (8-2) picked up the win and John Axford came on in the 10th and got his 13th save in 17 chances.
The Brewers will play the Sox again Saturday night.
