Eaton’s Grand Slam In 9th Lifts White Sox Past Indians, 10-7

STEVE HERRICK, Associated Press

CLEVELAND (AP) — Adam Eaton’s ninth-inning grand slam off closer Cody Allen capped a five-run rally and lifted the Chicago White Sox to a 10-7 win over the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday night.

Cleveland was two outs from increasing its AL Central lead over second-place Detroit to seven games, but the White Sox rallied to break a seven-game losing streak against the Indians.

With the Indians leading 7-5, Allen (2-5) retired the first hitter before Chicago loaded the bases on infield singles by Todd Frazier and J.B. Shuck, and a walk to Tim Anderson.

Dioner Navarro’s bloop hit down the left field line scored a run before Eaton homered to right on an 0-2 pitch for his first career grand slam.

Jacob Turner (1-1) pitched the eighth and David Robertson retired the final two hitters with two on in the ninth for his 30th save.

Anderson hit a two-run homer and Frazier had a two-run double for the White Sox.

Cleveland starter Carlos Carrasco struck out 11 in 6 2/3 innings. Lonnie Chisenhall homered and drove in three runs while Carlos Santana also homered.

Brandon Guyer’s two-run single gave Cleveland its two-run lead in the fifth that held up until Chicago’s big ninth.

Chisenhall’s homer in the second put Cleveland ahead, but Carrasco gave up Anderson’s home run in the third.

Santana homered and Chisenhall had an RBI single in the third, but Chicago scored three times in the fourth, sparked by Frazier’s double.

Carrasco struck out the side in the sixth and retired seven of the final eight hitters he faced.

Anthony Ranaudo, recalled from Triple-A Charlotte before the game, allowed five runs in four innings.

Mike Napoli was 0 for 3, ending his career-high 16-game hitting streak.

TRAINER’S ROOM

White Sox: C Alex Avila (strained right hamstring) is scheduled to begin a second rehab assignment with Charlotte next week. He was recalled from his first stint on July 20 when the injury flared up.

UP NEXT

White Sox: LHP Carlos Rodon is seeking his first back-to-back wins of the season. He allowed one run in six innings in his last start, a 4-2 victory at Miami.

Indians: RHP Danny Salazar (sore elbow) will be activated off the 15-day disabled list to start the series finale. He last appeared in a game on Aug. 1. Salazar will take the roster spot of RHP Josh Tomlin, who is on the family medical emergency list.
