PHILADELPHIA -- Alexei Ramirez hit a tiebreaking double in the 11th inning to lift the Chicago White Sox over the Philadelphia Phillies 5-4 in the opener of a day-night doubleheader Saturday.

After a 41-minute rain delay following the top of the ninth, White Sox righty Nate Jones escaped a no-out, second-and-third jam in the bottom half.

The teams were forced to play two after Friday night's interleague game was rained out. John Lannan faces Chicago's Hector Santiago in the nightcap.

Alejandro De Aza hit a two-out triple off J.C. Ramirez (0-1) in the 11th and Ramirez followed with a liner to right-center for his fourth hit. Ramirez then scored when shortstop Jimmy Rollins booted Alex Rios' grounder for an error.
