Indians Complete Sweep of White Sox
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Shin-Soo Choo hit a grand slam and drove in five runs to lead the Cleveland Indians to a 7-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday.

Choo hit his second career slam for a 7-0 lead in the second inning off Gavin Floyd (0-2).

Fausto Carmona (2-0) gave up three runs over six innings as the Indians completed their first three-game home sweep of Chicago since May 2003. Chris Perez got two outs in the ninth for his fourth save.

Choo singled home Cleveland's first run in a three-run first, and Mark Grudzielanek, hitting just .091, lined a two-run single to right for a 3-0 lead. The two RBIs were his first since July 29, 2008, when he was with Kansas City.

Omar Vizquel had an RBI double in Chicago's three-run fifth, when Carmona yielded four hits and one walk on 32 pitches. Carmona threw only 44 pitches over the first four innings.
