(Colo.)-Anderson Homer In 9th Lifts White Sox Past Rockies 5-4
By DENNIS GEORGATOS
DENVER (AP) - Tim Anderson homered off Colorado closer Greg Holland leading off the ninth inning, lifting the Chicago White Sox past the Rockies 5-4 on Saturday night.
Anderson, who also hit a home run in Friday night's loss to Colorado, drove a 1-2 pitch from Holland (1-1) into the stand of evergreens beyond the center-field wall.
The win snapped a three-game losing streak by the White Sox and denied the Rockies' bid for successive wins for the first time in three weeks.
David Robertson pitched a perfect ninth for his 13th save, striking out the last two batters, including Charlie Blackmon on a disputed called third strike. Blackmon heatedly argued the call with plate umpire Sam Holbrook, claiming it was low, and threw his helmet and bat to the ground after getting tossed. Manager Bud Black also was ejected for arguing the call with Holbrook.
Trailing 4-3 in the eighth, Colorado evened the score when Mark Reynolds hit a leadoff triple off reliever Tommy Kahnle (1-3) and scored on Gerardo Parra's sacrifice fly.
