CLEVELAND — Michael Bourn went into and out of Sunday’s game at Progressive Field with a bang as the Cleveland Indians dropped the chance to sweep the Chicago White Sox in the three-game series.

He gave the Tribe an early advantage with his lead-off home run and went 3-for-4 before an injury forced him to leave the game in the eighth inning.

Bourn was unintentionally spiked by pitcher Matt Thornton as he slid headfirst into first on an infield single.

He needed five stitches in his right index finger.

Bourn was the Tribe’s only player to cross the plate.

Despite a solid showing by starting pitcher Brett Myers, the White Sox managed to come alive and scored twice in the sixth inning.

Another run in the eighth produced a final 3-1 score.

The Indians said Bourn’s status will be evaluated day to day.

The team hosts a series against the Red Sox beginning at 7:05 p.m. Tuesday.
