Holmberg, Abreu leads White Sox past Indians 5-3

Share

David Holmberg had gone two years between victories.

Chicago White Sox outfielder Leury Garcia left his team's game against the Cleveland Indians on Sunday due to an injury, according to the White Sox's official Twitter account.

"Guys got thrown out that very easily could have not been thrown out and we could have had more runs on the board, " Robertson said.

The Indians trailed 3-2 entering the fifth inning. Tomlin allowed four runs (three earned) and nine hits, with no strikeouts or walks. David Robertson pitched the eighth and ninth innings to pick up his 10th save.

The unit as a whole hasn't been as sharp of late, but the back of the White Sox bullpen continues to get it done.

White Sox eighth. Matt Davidson walks.

"It is kind of cool", Holmberg said. White Sox 5, Indians 3. Tribe starter Corey Kluber overcame a slow start and gave up three runs on seven hits and two bases on balls through six innings to up his record to 4-2. "He didn't walk anyone, but there were a lot of hits".

Though the Indians didn't do much offensively - five hits on the night - they did get home runs from Edwin Encarnacion and Carlos Santana. In 16 career appearances against Chicago, Kluber is 7-4 with a 3.07.

"It was nice to have that early cushion".

"We need to win some ballgames, so I'm happy", Holmberg said.

"It was super aggressive but not necessarily good", Renteria said of the baserunning. "He did his job". As it showed, we had a chance.

The White Sox didn't waste any time driving Tomlin out of the game.

Tim Anderson led off with a single to right field and went to second on a single to center by Cabrera. Cabrera, who also was forced out at home in the first, was thrown out after an aggressive send by third-base coach Nick Capra on Abreu's double in the second.

Chicago's aggressiveness resulted in the White Sox making five outs on the bases, three at third base, and two at home.

Yan Gomes had a two-run single while Michael Brantley, Lonnie Chisenhall and Bradley Zimmer added RBIs. Avisail Garcia to second.

Garcia went 0-for-4 on Saturday while batting at the bottom of the order for Chicago.

The closer's two-inning effort followed a combined two innings of one-run ball from Anthony Swarzak, Dan Jennings and Chris Beck.

Another poor performance from the rotation put the Indians in a hole that was too deep Saturday night at Progressive Field.

"They came to me before the game and said be ready for (multiple innings)", said Robertson, who struck out four batters. In seven career appearances against the Indians, Gonzalez is 4-1 with a 4.12 ERA. Alen Hanson to third. Hanson was claimed off waivers from Pittsburgh on Friday.

Holmberg began the season at Triple-A Charlotte and was called up on May 4.

The White Sox almost scored another run in the inning after Abreu lined a double to left, but Brantley, shortstop Francisco Lindor and catcher Yan Gomes combined to erase Cabrera at home plate.
