CHICAGO (AP) - Rookies Chris Gimenez and Luis Valbuena hit consecutive home runs off former Cleveland ace Bartolo Colon and
the Indians beat the Chicago White Sox 8-4 on Sunday.
Victor Martinez and Shin-soo Choo also hit back-to-back homers off Colon, giving the Indians a 6-0 lead and helping them win a road series for only the second time this season. Cleveland has hit consecutive homers on five occasions this season - including three times in this three-game series.
The White Sox have been outscored 35-17 in going 2-5 on a homestand that concludes with a five-game series against first-place Detroit. The defending AL Central champions are 4½ games behind the Tigers and only 2½ games ahead of last-place Cleveland.
