CHICAGO -- Adam Dunn slammed a walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth to lift the Chicago White Sox to a 6-5 victory over the New York Yankees on Friday night.

Dunn's shot -- his eighth of the season -- came on an 0-2 pitch with none out and pinch runner Moises Sierra aboard. It was Dunn's 10th career game-ending home run.

The victory evened Chicago's record at 25-25 and extended its home winning streak against the Yankees (24-23) to eight.

Chicago reliever Daniel Webb (4-0) worked 1 1/3 innings for the win. New York reliever David Robertson (0-1) worked one-third inning, giving up two runs on two hits and a walk.

Shortstop Alexei Ramirez went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer for Chicago. Center fielder Adam Eaton went 3-for-5.

Chicago starter Hector Noesi allowed three runs on four hits and five walks in six innings. He struck out three and threw 111 pitches.

Shortstop Derek Jeter was 2-for-4 to lead the Yankees. Starter Hiroki Kuroda left after 4 2/3 innings, giving up four runs (two earned) on eight hits and two walks.

The Yankees jumped ahead 3-0 in the first inning when catcher Brian McCann slammed the first pitch he saw from Noesi into the right-field bullpen, scoring Jeter and designated hitter Mark Teixeira. It was McCann's seventh homer of the season and third this month.

The White Sox got one run back in the bottom of the inning. Leadoff batter Eaton singled, stole second with two out and scored when right fielder Dayan Viciedo reached on an error by Yankees first baseman Kelly Johnson.

Left fielder Alejandro De Aza scored on another Yankees error in the fourth as the White Sox trimmed the deficit to 3-2. De Aza reached base on a fielder's choice, advanced to second on catcher Tyler Flowers' single and scored when second baseman Brian Roberts had a faulty throw to first after Eaton's infield grounder.

The White Sox grabbed their first lead at 4-3 in the fifth when Ramirez lined Kuroda's first pitch to left field for his seventh home run -- a two-run shot that also scored Dunn.

Kuroda departed after giving up a base hit to designated hitter Paul Konerko.

The Yankees took the lead with two runs in the seventh.

A wild pitch during left fielder Jacoby Ellsbury's at-bat brought second baseman Brian Roberts home from third and Ellsbury's sacrifice fly drove home pinch hitter Alfonso Soriano for a 5-4 lead.

NOTES: LHP Vidal Nuno makes his seventh start and 10th appearance Saturday -- his first game against the White Sox. ... Yankees SS Derek Jeter received a standing ovation from appreciative White Sox fans prior to his first at-bat Friday. He singled down the right-field line. Jeter (20 seasons) and White Sox DH Paul Konerko (16) are the longest-tenured players on their respective clubs. Both are playing their final seasons. ... LHP Chris Sale said he felt stiff but otherwise fine one day after returning from the disabled list with a 10-strikeout, one-hit shutout over six innings in Thursday's 3-2 White Sox win.
