|Jackson Dominates as White Sox Hammer Indians
|CLEVELAND (AP) -- Edwin Jackson extended his mastery of Cleveland, Gordon Beckham and Carlos Quentin had two RBIs apiece and the Chicago White Sox beat the Indians 8-3 on Saturday for their first 2-0 start since 2005 -- when they won the World Series.
Jackson, who is 8-0 in his last nine starts against Cleveland, allowed two earned runs and five hits in six innings. He had one shaky frame, and that wasn't all his fault as two errors on one play by third baseman Brent Morel helped the Indians score two in the second.
Chicago jumped out to a 5-0 lead in two innings against Carlos Carrasco (0-1), who recovered and hung around until the seventh.
Travis Hafner homered for Cleveland in front of a crowd of 9,853 -- the smallest in Progressive Field since the ballpark opened in 1994.
