CHICAGO, April 23 (UPI) -- Asdrubal Cabrera rallied Cleveland with a two-run single in the eighth inning Monday and the Indians went on to record a 3-2 win over the Chicago White Sox.

Trailing 2-1 in the eighth, the Tribe began a comeback with one out when Drew Stubbs collected an infield single against Matt Thornton (0-1) and stole second base.

Michael Brantley then drew a walk and both runners advanced when Thornton threw wildly to first on a pick-off attempt.

After Jason Kipnes fanned for the second out, Cabrera delivered in the clutch, lining Thornton's first pitch into center field for a two-run base hit.

The rally made a winner of Justin Masterson (4-1), who overcame four walks en route to the victory. The right-hander yielded two runs on four hits while striking out five.

Vinnie Pestano tossed a scoreless eighth and Chris Perez notched his third save as the Tribe claimed the opener of a three-game series.

Conor Gillaspie went 2-for-3 with a solo homer for the White Sox.
