May 10, 1997|From Associated Press

CHICAGO — Dave Martinez hit a two-out, game-winning single in the bottom of the 10th inning Friday night to give the Chicago White Sox a 3-2 victory over the Oakland Athletics.

With two outs, Norberto Martin had an infield single and Lyle Mouton reached on third baseman Dave Magadan's error before Martinez lined a hit to right off Aaron Small (4-1).

"We are starting to come around," Martinez said. "Jaime [Navarro] kept us in this one. Everyone knows we have a good team on paper and now we are proving it on the field. I'm very pleased I was put in position to help this team win tonight." Roberto Hernandez (2-1) got the victory with two perfect innings of relief.

Frank Thomas and Albert Belle each had two hits for the White Sox, who have won four of their last five.
