Asdrubal Cabrera drove in five runs and Jeanmar Gomez won his fifth straight start for Cleveland as the Indians beat the Chicago White Sox 11-2 on Thursday night to remain in second place in the AL Central.
Gomez (5-2) gave up one earned run and four hits over six innings. Since being recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Aug. 30, the right-hander is 5-0 with a 1.80 ERA.
Cabrera hit a three-run homer and tied his career-high for RBIs. Kosuke Fukudome added three RBIs and Travis Hafner singled for his 1,000th career hit as Cleveland moved 1.5 games ahead of the White Sox.
Fukudome's two-out, two-run single off Philip Humber (9-9) in the fifth inning broke a 2-2 tie.
Fukudome and Jason Kipnis hit back-to-back home runs to lead off the first inning. That's the first time in 40-years that the Tribe started the game with back-to-back home runs. Graig Nettles and Vada Pinson turned the trick back in 1971.
Tonight, the Indians play the Minnesota Twins in the start of a four-game series. First pitch is at 7:05. Before the game, the Indians will honor Jim Thome.
