BOSTON -- The Red Sox came into Thursday night's game against the White Sox with just one walk-off win all season, that coming on Jarrod Saltalamacchia's pinch-hit, two-run home run to beat the Rays on May 26.
There were no calls of "Yoooouuuuk" Thursday night. The former Red Sox third baseman sat out the series finale with a tight hamstring.
The chant of the night was "Co-dy, Co-dy,'' after the Red Sox made it three out of four against the AL Central leaders.
Carl Crawford started the winning rally with a leadoff single off White Sox left-hander Matt Thornton. Dustin Pedroia, in his first game back off the DL, grounded into a force play, but Adrian Gonzalez followed with a line single to right.
White Sox manager Robin Ventura went to his rookie closer, Addison Reed, and Ross put one in the Monster seats.
