CHICAGO (AP) - Slump-ridden Jose Abreu hit an RBI single with one out in the bottom of the 11th inning, leading the Chicago White Sox over the Texas Rangers 4-3 Saturday.

After Texas tied it in the ninth on Elvis Andrus' sacrifice fly off David Robertson, the White Sox went on to win for the fourth time in five games.

Dioner Navarro drew a leadoff walk in the 11th from Nick Martinez (0-1), the last of five Texas relievers. Austin Jackson was hit by a pitch and Adam Eaton walked to load the bases.

One out later, Abreu grounded a single to left field for the second game-ending hit of his career. He took a .180 batting average into the game.

Matt Albers (1-0) pitched a scoreless inning.
