White Sox Vs. Indians Final Score: Chicago Hangs On For 5-4 Win

The Chicago White Sox held on Monday for a 5-4 win against the Cleveland Indians. With the win, the White Sox preserved their one-game lead over the Detroit Tigers in the American League Central.

Chicago trailed 3-2 going into the bottom of the eighth inning, but a 3-run Adam Dunn home run gave the White Sox the lead. The Indians threatened in the ninth inning with a run of their own, but Donnie Veal was able to come on and get the final out to record his first save of the season.

Chris Sale started the game for Chicago and allowed three runs over seven innings although he didn't factor in the decision. Brett Myers pitched a scoreless eighth inning to pick up his third win of the season. Matt Thornton started the ninth inning but allowed two hits and a run while getting two outs.

Dunn was the offensive hero for the White Sox. He finished 2-4 with two home runs and four RBI. Dunn now has 41 home runs on the season.

The two teams will play Game 2 of the three-game series Tuesday with first pitch scheduled for 2:10 p.m. ET.
