|White Sox Lose Second Straight to Cleveland
|CHICAGO (AP)-- Asdrubal Cabrera hit a tiebreaking, two-out single in the 11th inning and Grady Sizemore drove in three runs Thursday night, leading the Cleveland Indians to a 5-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox.
The Indians won two of three in the opening series and moved over .500 for the first time since they were 81-80 on the next-to-last day of 2008.
Luis Valbuena opened the 11th with a bunt single off J.J. Putz (0-1). He went to second on Lou Marson's sacrifice and, after Putz struck out Michael Brantley, Cabrera dumped a single into right field to put Cleveland ahead. Sizemore followed with his second RBI double of the night.
Jensen Lewis (1-0) worked 1 2-3 scoreless innings. Chris Perez pitched a perfect ninth for his second save.
