Carlos Santana's leadoff home run in the 10th inning gave the Cleveland Indians their seventh straight win, a 6-5 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday night.
Santana hit a 3-2 pitch from Dylan Axelrod (3-7) into the right field seats for Cleveland's ninth walkoff win of the season. The crowd of 22,258 roared when the ball reached the seats and Santana threw his helmet in the air as he reached home plate and was mobbed his teammates.
Chris Perez (4-1) hit Adam Dunn with a pitch with two outs in the 10th, but struck out Paul Konerko to end the inning as Chicago lost its sixth straight game.
Both teams scored two runs in the ninth. Pinch-hitter Jeff Keppinger's two-run single with the bases loaded gave Chicago a 5-3 lead. Cleveland tied the game on sacrifice flies by Michael Bourn and Jason Kipnis.

All of the alliteration and end rhyme in the world cannot truly describe how important Masterson has been for the Tribe’s resurgence this season. Obviously, Kluber, Kazmir and Ubaldo’s leaps have been important but with Justin it is beyond the lines embedded in leadership.
