CLEVELAND (AP/WJW) — Amed Rosario’s bases-loaded single with two outs in the 10th inning gave the Cleveland Indians a 2-1 win over the Chicago Cubs.

Rosario drove in Cleveland’s first run with a sixth-inning double. In the 10th, he singled to right on a 1-1 pitch from Keegan Thompson, giving the Indians a sweep of the two-game series.

Chicago threatened in every inning except the eighth but finished 1 for 15 with runners in scoring position and stranded 15 baserunners.

Joc Pederson drove in the Cubs’ only run with a double in the sixth.

The Cleveland Indians now head to Seattle to take on the Mariners tomorrow for a 4-game series.
