Nick Swisher's RBI single in the 8th inning put the Indians on top 4-3 over the Chicago White Sox. Chris Perez made sure that lead held up by securing his seventh save of the year in the 9th. The Indians will play for the four game sweep of Chicago on Sunday.
Ubaldo Jimenez started for the Tribe, but did not factor into the decision. Jimenez pitched five innings allowing nine hits and three runs. He walked four and struck out eight. Joe Martinez earned the win in relief, he pitched two shut out innings after being called up from Columbus earlier in the day.
