GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Justin Masterson pitched four hitless innings and the Cleveland Indians beat the Chicago White Sox 12-3 Thursday.
Jose Lopez hit a three-run homer and Shelley Duncan had a two-run shot, his third homer of the spring, for Cleveland.
A.J. Pierzynski hit a solo homer for Chicago.
Masterson faced the minimum 12 batters, striking out four. His only walk was immediately erased on a double play when shortstop Jason Donald made a backhand stab of a sharp grounder hit by Gordon Beckham to end the third.
White Sox starter Dyland Axelrod gave up three hits and one run over three innings.
Michael Brantley had a two-run double and Ryan Spilborghs a pair of two-out RBI hits for the Indians, who had 17 hits.
