Recap


Indians 7, White Sox 4:
Ryan Raburn and Yan Gomes each drove in a pair of runs in the eighth inning as Cleveland rallied past visiting Chicago for its sixth consecutive victory.

With the Indians trailing 4-3, Raburn put Cleveland ahead for good with a single up the middle off Matt Lindstrom that scored Asdrubal Cabrera and Drew Stubbs. Lonnie Chisenhall followed with a single, and Gomes extended the advantage with a double into the gap in right-center.

Bryan Shaw (2-2) recorded the final out of the eighth to earn the win, while Chris Perez worked around a one-out double in the ninth to record his 15th save. Donnie Veal (1-2) absorbed the loss - Chicago's fifth in a row - after allowing the go-ahead runs to reach base in the eighth.

Already ahead 2-0 on an Adam Dunn two-run double in the first inning, the White Sox extended the lead in the second. Gordon Beckham drilled a one-out double to left field and scored on Josh Phegley's single to center, giving the rookie catcher 11 RBIs in his first 18 major-league games.

The Indians drew even in the fifth on a bases-loaded walk and a rare two-run groundout from Michael Bourn, but Chicago regained the lead in the following inning on a Dayan Viciedo run-scoring infield single. 

GAME NOTEBOOK
: White Sox starter Andre Rienzo threw seven strong innings in his major-league debut, limiting Cleveland to three unearned runs on five hits. Cleveland counterpart Scott Kazmir was tagged for four runs on nine hits over five innings. ... Rienzo and Gomes - the lone Brazilian players in major-league history - faced off for the first time in the third inning. Gomes promptly singled to center, and both players smiled as Gomes reached first base. ... Cleveland acquired LHP Marc Rzepczynski from the St. Louis Cardinals prior to the game. The Indians sent minor-league SS Juan Herrera to St. Louis in exchange for Rzepczynski, who had a 7.84 ERA in 10 1/3 innings with the Cardinals.
