CLEVELAND (AP) — Pinch-hitter Jason Giambi homered over the center field wall leading off the ninth inning to give the Cleveland Indians their fifth straight win, 3-2 over the Chicago White Sox.

Giambi, batting for struggling Mark Reynolds, belted a 1-1 pitch from Ramon Troncoso (1-3) high over the wall and into the bushes in center. It was the 436th career homer and ninth career walk-off shot for the slugger, who had a bucket of water dumped over his head by teammates after the game.

Chris Perez (3-1) pitched the ninth, allowing a two-out triple to Dayan Viciedo but got out of the inning on a nice catch by left fielder Michael Brantley.

The Indians moved within 2 1-2 games of the idle Detroit Tigers in the AL Central.

The White Sox have lost four straight and 10 of 13.
