Indians Vs. White Sox Final Score: Offensive Explosion Gives South Siders 14-7 Win

The Chicago White Sox scored four runs in the first, third and seventh innings on Saturday afternoon en route to a 14-7 home victory over the Cleveland Indians. By the time Alex Rios blasted a two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth inning to reach the final score, the Sox's offensive production almost felt excessive. The win moves Chicago to 25-22, while the division-leading Indians fall to 26-20.

Paul Konerko went 4-for-4 with a walk, three runs and two RBI on the day. His batting average now sits at a league-best .396. Alex Rios had a first inning home run robbed on an amazing catch from Indians' center fielder Michael Brantley, but still managed to finish the day 3-for-5 with three RBI and three runs. Left field Dayan Viciedo continued his hot streak, ending the day 3-of-5 with a home run (his 10th of the season) and five RBI.

The White Sox improve to 1-0 on days when Bob Saget sings the national anthem.
