CHICAGO (AP) — Danny Salazar struck out nine in 3 2-3 innings, Ryan Raburn hit an RBI double and the Cleveland Indians beat the White Sox 3-1 on Friday, beating the White Sox for the 10th time in a row this season.
Salazar’s pitch count was limited to 85, and after allowing Dayan Viciedo’s single with two outs on his 78th pitch, he was replaced by Nick Hagadone with runners on first and third. The win got Cleveland to within a game of Tampa Bay for the second AL wild card spot, before the Rays played Friday night.
Bryan Shaw (4-3) threw two scoreless innings for the win.
Hector Santiago (4-9) remained winless since Aug. 18 for Chicago, going four-plus innings and giving up three runs and six hits while walking three.
