Chicago (WOIO) - Fausto Carmona stepped up, just when the Indians needed him most, going eight and one-third innings, and giving up only one run on four hits, as the Tribe finally found a way to beat the White Sox, 4-1 the final at U.S. Cellular Field.
It marked only the second time in 9 tries this season that the Indians beat the White Sox, but they did it by jumping on Mark Buehrle early. Jack Hannahan's RBI single put the Indians up 1-0 in the second.
The White Sox answered in the bottom half, taking advantage of the only mistake the Carmona made all night, Alexi Ramirez taking him deep for a solo home run, tying the game at one.
The Indians added another run in the 6th on Kosuke Fukudome's RBI single, then two more in the 7th.
Coupled with the Tigers' loss to the Twins, it moved the Indians back to within two games of first place Detroit in the A.L. Central.
