CHICAGO (AP) -- Paul Konerko hit a go-ahead three-run homer and the Chicago White Sox routed the Cleveland Indians 12-6 on Sunday to complete a three-game sweep. Konerko battled back from an 0-2 count against Ubaldo Jimenez in the fourth inning and deposited the eighth pitch of the at-bat into the left-center field seats to give Chicago a 7-4 lead. Konerko finished with two hits and four RBIs, and raised his average to a majors-best .399. Johnny Damon hit a three-run homer for the Indians, his first of the season, and Jimenez (5-4) struggled over four-plus innings. He gave up seven runs and seven hits, walked four and struck out three. Gavin Floyd (4-5) wasn't much better. He allowed five runs on 10 hits over five-plus innings. He also hit three batters with pitches.
