CHICAGO, Ill (AP) — Gordon Beckham homered, Conor Gillaspie singled home another run and the Chicago White Sox outlasted the Indians 2-1 despite the departure of ace Chris Sale after just three innings in a game twice delayed by rain Tuesday night.

Beckham finished 2 for 4, adding a double in the first inning.

Mike Aviles went 1 for 2 with a walk and drove in Cleveland’s run.

Scott Carroll (2-3) worked three scoreless innings in relief to get the win. Ronald Belisario worked a perfect ninth for his third save in five chances.

The anticipated matchup between Sale and Justin Masterson was cut short. The game began 41 minutes late because of rain and then was stopped again after the third inning. That delay lasted 1:58 and neither starter was able to continue.

The Indians placed Carlos Santana on the seven-day disabled list with a concussion and infielder Nick Swisher on the 15-day DL with a left knee injury on Tuesday.

Santana was hit in the head by a foul ball on Sunday in Baltimore. He was originally in the lineup for the opener of the series in Chicago on Monday, but was scratched just before game time after experiencing concussion-like symptoms.
