|Indians Turn Triple Play in Win Over White Sox
|CLEVELAND (AP) -- Orlando Cabrera hit a two-run homer and helped turn a triple play, leading the Cleveland Indians to their first win, 7-1 over the Chicago White Sox Sunday.
Cabrera connected in the sixth inning off John Danks (0-1), putting Cleveland ahead 2-1 and helping the Indians avoid a three-game sweep.
In the fourth, Carlos Santana began the majors' first triple play of the season in his first big league game at first base. Santana, normally a catcher, made a diving catch on Alexei Ramirez's bunt with two runners in motion. He threw to first to double off A.J. Pierzynski. Second baseman Orlando Cabrera took the throw and tossed to shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera to catch Carlos Quentin off second.
