They were trailing 5-4 going into the ninth when Dayan Viciedo led off with a single.

Dunn then won it when he drove an 0-2 pitch out to right-center for his eighth homer. It was the 10th time he has ended a game by homering, and the first for him since July 4, 2013, against Baltimore.

That made a winner of Daniel Webb (4-0), who pitched 1 1-3 scoreless innings, and gave Robertson (0-1) his first blown save in 10 chances.

Derek Jeter singled twice, walked and scored while tying Luis Aparicio for second in games played at shortstop with 2,583.

Ramirez and Adam Eaton each had three hits for Chicago and the White Sox won for the fourth time in five games.

The Yankees looked as though they might be on their way to an easy win when Brian McCann connected off Hector Noesi in the first. It was a good start for New York after managing just one baserunner in six innings against Chris Sale in Thursday's loss, but things quickly took a difficult turn.

The Yankees gave up unearned runs in the first and fourth, and Chicago took a 4-3 lead on Ramirez's two-run homer off Hiroki Kuroda in the fifth.

Scott Downs came on in the seventh after Noesi went six innings for Chicago and immediately gave up singles to Brian Roberts and a pinch-hitting Alfonso Soriano.

The White Sox brought in Jake Petricka and, after Brett Gardner laid down a sacrifice bunt, Jeter walked to load the bases.

Roberts then scored when Petricka bounced a pitch to Ellsbury, who then drove in Soriano with a sacrifice fly to center to give the Yankees a 5-4 lead.

Kuroda allowed four runs (two earned) and eight hits in 4 2-3 innings. He is 0-7 in 11 road starts since a win at Texas on July 25.

Noesi, a former Yankees prospect who got dealt to Seattle in the Michael Pineda trade in January 2012, allowed three runs and four hits. He walked five, but was in line for his first win since he beat Minnesota while with the Mariners on May 6, 2012, before the bullpen gave away the lead.
