Alexei Ramirez hits walk-off home run (Video)


The Chicago White Sox found themselves behind by one run in the bottom of the 9th inning on Sunday afternoon against the Cleveland Indians. That was thanks to a blown save from their closer (for now) Matt Lindstrom.

And so John Axford, the closer for the Indians, was on to try and seal the late victory for his team. Facing Alexei Ramirez, he ended up turning in the second blown save of the game and the White Sox won 4-3.

Observe below as Ramirez blasts a walk-off home run, though the drama is muted due to a lack of Hawk Harrelson on the call (from MLB.com):

Ramirez, who swung at all four pitches he saw over the course of the entire game on Sunday, is off to a blistering start through 12 games this season. He is batting .413/.430/.630 with two home runs and 10 driven in. His production, combined with the breakout of Jose Abreu, go a long way towards explaining Chicago’s somewhat surprising 7-6 start to the season.
