CHICAGO (AP) - Jose Abreu hit a game-winning grand slam with two outs in the ninth inning for his second home run of the night, rallying the Chicago White Sox past the Tampa Bay Rays 9-6 on Friday.

Evan Longoria's two-run homer in the top of the ninth put Tampa Bay ahead 6-4, but the White Sox weren't done. Abreu's drive off closer Grant Balfour (0-1) won it after Chicago pitchers combined for 11 walks.

Balfour gave up a one-out double to Alejandro De Aza, then walked Tyler Flowers and pinch-hitter Paul Konerko. As Konerko trotted to first, Balfour and Konerko exchanged words.

Adam Eaton hit a grounder to second base, but Tampa Bay was unable to turn the double play after getting a force at second.
