Indians 3, White Sox 2

CLEVELAND — Carlos Santana hit a leadoff homer in the ninth inning to lift the Indians to a 3-2 win over the White Sox on Friday night.

Santana drove an 0-2 pitch from Nate Jones over the wall in center for his 14th homer, stopping Cleveland's three-game losing streak.

Jason Kipnis' RBI double in the eighth inning put the AL Central-leading Indians in front, but Avisail Garcia tied for the White Sox with a one-out double in the ninth against closer Cody Allen.

Michael Martinez started the Cleveland eighth with a single off Jose Quintana. Rajai Davis struck out, but Kipnis' line drive to center rolled to the wall and Martinez scored.

Allen retired Alex Avila to start the ninth, but Brett Lawrie doubled and scored on Garcia's drive to the base of the wall in center.

Francisco Lindor's RBI single in the first gave Cleveland the lead before Jose Abreu's run-scoring groundout tied it in the third.

Rightfielder Lonnie Chisenhall's misplay in the third helped Chicago tie it.

Chisenhall tried a sliding grab of Adam Eaton's one-out line drive, but the ball skipped past him and rolled to warning track. Eaton ended up with a triple and scored on Abreu's grounder to shortstop.
