CLEVELAND (AP) -- Pinch-hitter Ryan Raburn's two-run single in the eighth inning rallied the Cleveland Indians to their sixth straight win, 7-4 over the freefalling Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night.
Raburn, batting for Jason Giambi, who won Monday night's game with a pinch-hit homer in the ninth, singled off Matt Lindstrom as the Indians stormed back and won for the 11th time in 15 games.
Yan Gomes added a two-run single in the eighth as the Indians stayed within 2 1-2 game of first-place Detroit in the AL Central.
The Indians were in danger of losing to Brazilian rookie Andre Rienzo in his debut before coming back against Donnie Veal (1-2), who started the eighth.
Cleveland's comeback spoiled a solid outing by Rienzo, who started in place of Jake Peavy. Rienzo, the first Brazilian-born player to pitch in the major leagues, did not allow an earned and only five hits in seven innings.
Bryan Shaw (2-2) got one out in the eighth and closer Chris Perez worked the ninth for...

Akron Aeros outfielder Carlos Moncrief is not your typical prospect.
At 24 years old, he’s a bit more, well, mature than the average Double-A Eastern League player. He’s listed as 6-foot and 219-lbs, which both seem to be moderately generous. And as a former pitcher, he doesn’t have quite that much professional experience as a batter.
But the Cleveland Indians can no longer...
Now it's time for the fifth part in this series where I hope to show just what a crazy talent Carlos Santana has become. I know a lot of people see the batting average and bad defense and think he is just an average player, but any team in baseball would love to have him. There is no doubt that he is a top five player at his position.
For references, here are links to the...

COLUMBUS- The Columbus Clippers defeated the Buffalo Bisons 3-2 Wednesday night by taking advantage of an early lead made in the first inning. Columbus’ pitching staff was what shined Wednesday night though with a win, two holds, and a save to show for it.
The Clippers offense came into the first inning hot, jumping on Buffalo starter Chien-Ming Wang. Tim Fedroff led off drawing...
I always enjoy videos like this. The ones where a baseball player is giving a TV interview and his teammates begin to mess with him. Usually it involves throwing sunflower seeds, cups, sticking cups to the persons head and similar things. It shows that this is still a game and meant to be fun.
Well, last night Justin Masterson of the Cleveland Indians was the recipient of such...
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...
Monday night we spotlighted the contrast in walk off calls between a depressed Hawk Harrelson and jubilant Tom Hamilton after Jason Giambi's walk off winner for the Tribe.
Wouldn't you know Wednesday night it happened again. This time Carlos Santana hit the game winning home run in extra innings for Cleveland in a 6-5 victory.
Let's get the bad news out of the...
