CHICAGO — First baseman Yu Chang hit Yasmani Grandal with a throw trying to force him at second base as Nick Madrigal raced home with the winning run in the ninth inning, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Cleveland Indians 4-3 on Monday night. Adam Eaton homered in his second straight game and rookie Yermín Mercedes got the winning rally started with one out in the ninth when he singled to shortstop against Emmanuel Clase (1-1). Grandal walked to put runners on first and second before Nick Williams sent a grounder toward Chang. His throw trying to get Grandal at second hit the runner in the head. The ball ricocheted toward the left side of the infield, and Madrigal — running for Mercedes — sped home. Eaton hit a three-run homer in the third against Triston McKenzie. Dallas Keuchel pitched into the sixth for the White Sox after Carlos Rodón was scratched because of an upset stomach. Codi Heuer (1-0) struck out a career-high four over 2 1/3 innings, and Chicago stopped Cleveland’s four-game win streak. Keuchel gave up three runs and three hits. The two-time All-Star, working on four days’ rest, retired 12 in a row following Eddie Rosario’s two-run homer in the second before exiting with the bases loaded and none out in the sixth. Keuchel walked Chang leading off and gave up a single to Jordan Luplow before walking Cesar Hernandez. Evan Marshall came in and struck out José Ramírez. Franmil Reyes tied it at 3 with a sacrifice fly before Rosario struck out. The White Sox loaded the bases in the bottom half, only to come away empty-handed when Cal Quantrill struck out Mercedes and got Grandal to ground into a double play. McKenzie gave up three runs and two hits over four innings in his first start of the season. The 23-year-old right-hander struck out six and walked two. TRAINER'S ROOM White Sox: Manager Tony La Russa said he expects SS Tim Anderson (strained left hamstring) to start Thursday's series finale when he's eligible to come off the 10-day injured list.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Jonas Valanciunas had 26 points and 14 rebounds, leading a fourth-quarter burst that carried the Memphis Grizzlies to a 101-90 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Monday night. Valanciunas, who had 32 points and 22 rebounds a night earlier in a loss to the Indiana Pacers, scored 10 in the fourth as Memphis used an 18-6 run to break open a close game. Dillon Brooks finished with 17 points and Grayson Allen added 14. Ja Morant had 13 points and 10 assists. Zach LaVine scored 21 points, but he was just 5 for 14 from the field as the Bulls lost their third straight. Thaddeus Young scored 20 and Daniel Theis had 18. Nikola Vucevic finished with 17 points and 10 rebounds. Valanciunas’ double-double was his 15th in a row, setting a franchise record. The teams stayed close through the first three quarters. Vucevic provided a bit of a buffer for the Bulls, scoring 12 in the period for a 74-70 Chicago lead entering the fourth. The game was originally scheduled for Jan. 27, but called off due to health and safety protocols. That left both teams playing Monday on the second night of a back-to-back, and coming off losses. Both teams fell short of overcoming double-digit deficits in Sunday games – Memphis to Indiana and the Bulls to the Timberwolves. The lingering effects of the consecutive games showed early. Neither team managed more than 46% shooting in the first half, and Memphis added to its problems with a dozen turnovers, while the Bulls committed nine. That made for a close half. A 16-6 run to close it gave Memphis a 48-47 lead at intermission. Neither team led by double digits until Memphis' run in the fourth. TIP-INS Bulls: The game wrapped up a span where Chicago played nine of its last 10 on the road. The exception was a home win over Brooklyn on April 4. … Theis was 7 of 8 in the first half, scoring 14 points. … Vucevic tied his season high with five steals. … Chicago's six-game winning streak in the series was snapped. ... With 23 assists, its streak of nine straight games with at least 25 assists ended. Grizzlies: Travel to Chicago on Friday for the second game of the season home-and-home series. The game in Chicago is the first of a seven-game road trip for Memphis. … Valanciunas’ streak topped Zach Randolph’s consecutive games with a double-double from 2011. SHOOTING OF DAUNTE WRIGHT In his pregame comments, Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins addressed the shooting of Daunte Wright in a Minneapolis suburb. Jenkins said the incident “has just been another reminder about how there is so much change that needs to happen in our country.” “More work needs to be done,” Jenkins said, “and we talked as a team about the importance of using our voices to speak out on injustices, how there needs to be equality for all, how these situations are avoidable and change needs to happen. There’s a long road ahead.” UP NEXT Bulls: Host Orlando on Wednesday Grizzlies: Host the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday. More AP NBA: https://apnews.com/hub/NBA Clay Bailey, The Associated Press
