José Abreu stood on first with one out, having reached on an infield single in the seventh inning Saturday against the Detroit Tigers.
Yasmani Grandal flied out to the warning track in center and Abreu tagged up and raced for second.
The Chicago White Sox veteran made it to the bag just ahead of Riley Greene’s throw. The Tigers challenged the call, but it stood after a video review.
“He’s a good baserunner, excellent baserunner,” Sox manager Tony La Russa said. “If his legs feel good, he’s got a little extra gear there he gets to. That’s heads-up knowing the situation.”
The hustle paid off when Andrew Vaughn followed with a single to center. Abreu scored, giving the Sox the lead on the way to a 6-4 victory in front of 29,458 at Guaranteed Rate Field.
