CHICAGO, Ill. (AP) – Moises Sierra drove in the winning run with a single in the ninth inning, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Indians 3-2 on Wednesday night to complete a three-game sweep.
Chicago’s Hector Noesi and Cleveland’s T.J. House each came through with dominant starts. The Indians’ Jason Giambi hit his 440th homer, but the White Sox came away with their seventh win in 10 games.
The Indians had just scored a run in the top of the ninth off Ronald Belisario (3-3) when the White Sox answered in the bottom half against Bryan Shaw (1-1).
Third baseman Mike Aviles bounced the throw to first on Tyler Flowers’ leadoff grounder. Pinch-runner Leury Garcia stole second and moved up on a fly by Marcus Semien before Sierra won it with a single to right on a 3-2 pitch, getting mobbed at first base by teammates.
The Indians activated All-Star second baseman Jason Kipnis from the 15-day disabled list after he was sidelined by a strained muscle in his right side.
