CLEVELAND, April 14 (UPI) -- Travis Hafner's two-run double in a three-run sixth Thursday night broke open a tie game and carried Cleveland to an 8-6 win over the Chicago White Sox.

The Indians salvaged the final game of a three-game set.

Victor Martinez contributed a home run and two RBI as the Indians lost an early lead and then jumped back on top in the sixth.

Paul Konerko hit a three-run homer for Chicago.

In a 5-5 game, Jhonny Peralta and Coco Crisp walked to open the sixth and Alex Cora singled home Peralta.

Hafner then doubled to left to give the Indians an 8-5 advantage.

The win went to Rafael Betancourt (1-0), who worked two scoreless innings of relief. Bob Wickman earned his third save of the year.

Chicago's Carl Everett left the game in the first when he ran into the wall trying to make a catch and suffered a contusion of his left shoulder.
