Indians Get 12 Hits in 12-6 Win Over White Sox
CHICAGO (AP) — Ryan Raburn hit a tiebreaking, two-run single with two outs in the seventh inning, leading the Cleveland Indians to a 12-6 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Saturday.
Nick Swisher, Jason Kipnis and David Murphy homered for Cleveland, which snapped a three-game losing streak. Murphy added a three-run triple in a four-run ninth against Donnie Veal.
The Indians improved to 18-4 against the White Sox since the beginning of last season, overcoming another shaky start by Justin Masterson. They will try for a split of the four-game series Sunday.
Adam Eaton had two hits, including his first homer, and walked twice for the White Sox, who have scored five or more runs in nine of their 12 games this season. Adam Dunn had a two-run single and Alexei Ramirez extended his hitting streak to 13 games dating to last season.
