The Cleveland Indians have recalled Zach McAllister from Triple-A Columbus to start the first game of a day-night doubleheader against Chicago.
McAllister went 3-1 with a 2.83 ERA in six starts for the Clippers. He'll face White Sox right-hander Philip Humber, who pitched a perfect game earlier this season.
The 24-year-old McAllister was in the mix to win a job as the No. 5 starter in spring training. He's making his fifth career major league start and second against the White Sox. The right-hander got a no-decision on Sept. 20 last season against Chicago.
The Indians took two of three over the weekend against Texas, the defending AL champion, and lead the AL Central by 1 1-2 games over Detroit and three over the White Sox.
BEST OF MAXIM
The Indians have a double header on Monday against the White Sox. They will have the opportunity to try out Major League Baseball’s new 26th man rule. The provision exists for the day a team has a double header. It allows teams to bring up a pitcher from the minor leagues without sending another player down or having to release someone altogether.
The Indians will use the provision...
Zach McAllister recorded his first major league win, and Nick Hagadone got his first save as Cleveland beat Chicago in the first game of a day-night double header. Travis Hafner had a home run and a triple!

This was one of Manny Acta's bolder commitments in his three years as manager of the Indians. The Indians were scheduled to play a doubleheader against the Chicago White Sox Monday, and Acta decided he was going to play the doubleheader without using his two top relievers.
Closer Chris Perez and setup man Vinnie Pestano had both been used heavily in a weekend series with Texas...
Every one of Ubaldo Jimenez's starts have seemed like soap operas, as the big right-hander has struggled to throw strikes, keep his pitch counts down, and pitch deep into games. Jimenez was able to do all that Sunday in his best start of the season, a 4-2 decision over the Texas Rangers.
Jimenez pitched seven scoreless innings on two hits, with six strikeouts. He did walk five...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Grady Sizemore isn't about to give up on his latest rehab with the Cleveland Indians.
The three-time All-Star outfielder, on the disabled list for the seventh time in the last four years, jogged around Progressive Field before Cleveland played the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday. He said he hopes to return in June and hasn't thought about calling it a career...
Well that was certainly nice to see. Ubaldo Jimenez gave up just two hits in seven innings (five walks, six strikeouts) and the Tribe bats did enough to give Yu Darvish his first major league loss. Jason Kipnis hit his fifth home run of the season and Asdrubal Cabrera had a 2-run double. Chris Perez pitched a scoreless ninth for his league high 11th save.
Shelley Duncan's RBI double in the eighth inning gave the Cleveland Indians a soggy 3-2 win over the Chicago White Sox on Monday night and a sweep of their day-night doubleheader.
Duncan ripped a pitch from left-hander Matt Thornton (1-2) into the left-field corner, scoring Asdrubal Cabrera.
The first-place Indians won the opener 8-6.
The White Sox have lost six of seven....
Lake County Captains shortstop Francisco Lindor has been named Indians Minor League Player of the Week, recognizing last year’s first-round selection for his work at the A-ball level.
The 18-year-old Lindor has hit .379 with two home runs and five stolen bases in his last seven games, posting a 1.040 OPS. On May 2, Lindor went 3-for-5 with two runs scored, a double and a stolen...

Josh Tomlin won tonight's Player of the Game with 7.1 innings pitched and a new career high with 8 strikeouts. Tomlin only allowed 5 hits (one for extra bases) and one of the two runs he allowed actually came in against Joe Smith. It was one of his best outings of the season as he continues to improve week in and week out. His score of 5.98 far outshined...

There was a lot of fun had last night on the WFNY Facebook page putting captions to Chris Perez’s celebratory scream and fist pump. Here were some of the highlights. As always the instructions were to keep it clean.
