Swisher gets big hit in 8th, lifts Indians to win

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) - Nick Swisher singled in the tiebreaking run in the eighth inning, and the Cleveland Indians beat the Chicago White Sox for the third time in less than 24 hours, 4-3 Saturday.

Swisher's homer in the ninth inning Friday night helped Cleveland secure a sweep of a marathon doubleheader Friday night.

This time, Cabrera, Jason Kipnis and Swisher hit three consecutive one-out singles off Jesse Crain (2-3) in the eighth. Crain allowed his first run since April 12. He hadn't given up an earned run for 31 outings before Saturday.

Joe Martinez (1-0), called up from AAA Columbus Saturday, earned the victory in his first major league appearance this season. He pitched two innings and held Chicago to two hits and no runs with one strikeout.
