Chicago,  IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Adam Dunn crushed a two-run homer off David 
Robertson in the bottom of the ninth inning to send the Chicago White Sox past 
the New York Yankees, 6-5, in dramatic fashion. 

After  giving up  a leadoff single to Dayan Viciedo, Robertson (0-1) grooved a 
cutter  into Dunn's  wheelhouse and  the slugger  sent a  no-doubter into  the 
right-field seats as the closer walked off the mound in disgust. 

"That's the best feeling in probably all of sports," Dunn said of his walk-off 
homer.  "Especially after  a night like tonight, long game. I know everyone is 
tired on both sides." 

It was the eighth straight time the Yankees lost at U.S. Cellular Field. 

Alexei  Ramirez went  3-for-4 with a two-run homer, while Adam Eaton had three 
hits and scored once for the White Sox, who have won four of their last five. 

Daniel  Webb (4-0)  recorded the  final out  of the  eighth before  spinning a 
scoreless ninth to pick up the win. 

The  Yankees, meanwhile,  are in a 1-4 slump despite Brian McCann staking them 
to an early lead with a three-run homer in the first inning. 

Two errors helped Chicago cut into the deficit. 

Dayan  Viciedo appeared to ground out to end the home first, but Kelly Johnson 
missed  Yangervis Solarte's  low throw  from third  base, allowing  a hustling 
Eaton to score without a throw. 

Eaton forced another errant throw in the fourth when Brian Roberts fielded his 
slow roller and skipped one past Johnson to bring in Alejandro De Aza. 

Yankees  starter  Hiroki Kuroda walked  Dunn with two  away in the fifth, then 
served up Ramirez's go-ahead blast into the first row of seats in left. 

Kuroda  was pulled later  in the inning having allowed four runs -- two earned 
-- on eight hits and two walks. 

Scott  Downs  took over  for Chicago  starter Hector Noesi  in the seventh and 
promptly  gave  up base hits to  Roberts and Alfonso Soriano. A sacrifice bunt 
and walk loaded the bases, and Roberts scored the tying run on Jake Petricka's 
wild pitch. Jacoby Ellsbury followed with a go-ahead sac fly to center. 

"We did a really good job in the seventh of getting the lead," Yankees manager 
Joe Girardi remarked.
