MLB: Cleveland 14, Chicago White Sox 3

Sept. 13, 2013 at 12:43 AM   |   Comments

CHICAGO, Sept. 13 (UPI) -- Ryan Raburn drove in a season-high five runs Thursday and had a role in Cleveland's two big innings that brought about a 14-3 win over the Chicago White Sox.

The Indians stayed 1 1/2 games behind Tampa Bay in the race for the second wild card berth in the American League. Cleveland has defeated Chicago nine straight times, the Indians' most consecutive wins in the history of the rivalry.

Raburn hit a three-run homer during a four-run first inning and then finished off a seven-run fifth with a two-RBI single. Nick Swisher drove in three runs in contributing to a Cleveland attack that included 16 hits.

Corey Kluber (9-5) went five innings to get the win, his third in a row. He gave up two runs on six hits. John Danks (4-13) was mauled for six runs on nine hits in four innings, after which Charlie Leesman gave up the seven runs in the fifth without retiring a batter.
