Indians beat Cubs, 4-3, after a couple of rain delays
CLEVELAND— Rookie Giovanny Urshela’s seventh-inning single drove in the go-ahead run and the Cleveland Indians beat the Chicago Cubs 4-3 on Thursday night.
Kyle Schwarber hit his first major league home run for the Cubs, a two-run blast off Danny Salazar in the fifth that tied the game at 3-all.
The game was delayed twice by rain for a total of 1 hour and 41 minutes. Following a 1:16 delay in the fifth, Indians manager Terry Francona went with closer Cody Allen to work out of a bases-loaded jam.
The Indians bounced back from Wednesday’s 17-0 loss and survived another big night from Schwarber, who had two hits and is 6 for 10 with four RBIs in three games since being called up Tuesday.
Zach McAllister (2-2) pitched 1 1-3 innings while Bryan Shaw recorded the final four outs for his first save.
