Tribe tops ChiSox 7-1, half-game out in wild card

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) - Nick Swisher homered from both sides of the plate for the 13th time, Asdrubal Cabrera hit a three-run homer and the Cleveland Indians beat the Chicago White Sox 7-1 Sunday to pull within a half-game of Tampa Bay and Texas in the AL wild-card race.

In a game that started after a rain delay of 4 hours, 28 minutes, the Indians achieved a franchise first by sweeping a 4-game series from the White Sox for the third time in a season.

Zach McAllister (8-9) allowed one run and six hits in 6 2-3 innings with five strikeouts and a walk.

Last-place Chicago has lost six in a row, and at 58-91 is 33 games under .500 for the first time since finishing 1976 with a 64-97 record, according to STATS.
