LaPorta, Indians Down White Sox
GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) -- Matt LaPorta's RBI double in the first inning off Gavin Floyd, the first hit off a Chicago starter this spring, led a split squad of Cleveland Indians to an 8-3 win over the White Sox on Saturday.

LaPorta's hit scored Shin-Soo Choo and ended a streak of 10 2-3 hitless innings by Chicago's five-man rotation in Cactus League play. The Indians are counting on a big season from LaPorta, acquired in the 2008 trade for CC Sabathia.

Indians starter David Huff pitched three scoreless innings to help his chances of winning the No. 5 spot.

Cleveland's Jason Donald, expected to be the starting third baseman, was taken for X-rays on his left hand after being struck by Floyd. The Indians did not provide an immediate medical update.
