Abreu Launches MLB-Best 29th Homer in Win

(Major League BaseballCLEVELAND) -- Chicago White Sox rookie Jose Abreu continues to dazzle. On Saturday, the first baseman launched his 29th home run of the season, the most in the MLB so far this year.

"He's good," said White Sox manager Robin Ventura. "I'm glad he's on our side."

An All-Star selection this year, this two-run blast broke a scoreless tie in the top of the fourth and powered Chicago (45-50) to a 6-2 win over the Cleveland Indians. Abreu is 7-for-35 with five homers against Cleveland (46-47) this season.

"I wasn't thinking about a home run," Abreu said. "I was trying to hit the ball the other way. I hit a line drive, and I was lucky it went out of the park."

So far this year, Abreu is hitting a respectable .287 and is second in the majors with 73 Runs Batted In. Scott Carroll (4-5) picked up the win in his second straight while Zach McCallister (3-5) took the loss for Cleveland.

Adam Dunn would add an RBI in the sixth to make it 3-0 before the Indians cut the gap to one on Michael Brantley's solo home in the eighth. The White Sox then added a trio of insurance runs in the top of the ninth to ensure the victory.

Indians Place RHP Justin Masterson on 15-Day Disabled List

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(CLEVELAND) -- The Cleveland Indians placed starting pitcher Justin Masterson on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday because of inflammation in his right knee. The Indians recalled left-handed pitcher Nick Hagadone from Triple-A Columbus to take Masterson’s roster spot.

On Monday night against the New York Yankees, Masterson lasted just two innings, allowing five earned runs on six hits in the 5-3 loss.  The right-hander is 4-6 on the season with a 5.51 ERA and a 1.65 WHIP.

In six games with the Indians this season, the 28-year-old Hagadone is 1-0 with a 6.00 ERA. He has allowed two earned runs in three innings of work.

Swisher Slams Cleveland Past Angels in Extras

Joe Robbins/Getty Images(CLEVELAND, Ohio) -- Albert Pujols hit a go-ahead, two-run single in the top of the tenth that put Los Angeles ahead 3-1. Nick Swisher answered with a walk-off grand slam in the bottom half of the inning to give Cleveland a 5-3 victory on Thursday afternoon.

"When I first hit it, I said, all right, that's a double," said Swisher. "The next thing you know, it went out. I flipped my bat. I was going crazy."

The two-out hit was Swisher's only one of the day, striking out each time in his previous three at-bats. It was also the second time that the Indians (37-36) came from behind in the game. With a runner on third in the second, Cleveland starter Justin Masterson delivered a wild pitch that allowed Howie Kendrick to score and give the Angels (38-33) a 1-0 advantage. 

Cleveland answered back in the third on a groundout from Michael Bourn in the third, the last run scored in the first nine innings. Both Masterson and Los Angeles starter, C.J. Wilson went seven innings before turning things over to the bullpen.

Pujols' two-RBI hit came off reliever Scott Atchison with two outs, seemingly giving the Angels the victory. However, Bourn walked to lead off before Jason Kipnis doubled two batters later. After Carlos Santana walked to load the bases, Ernesto Frieri came on to try and finish off the game. Frieri induced a fly out from Daniel Murphy for the second out before Swisher's slam gave the Indians a 5-3 win.

Brantley Has Concussion, Likely Out Until Saturday

Ed Zurga/Getty Images(CLEVELAND) -- Cleveland Indians outfielder Michael Brantley was diagnosed with a concussion Wednesday and likely won't play until Saturday.

Brantley suffered the injury Monday when he slid into second base trying to break up a double play in the Indians 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels.

Brantley was taken out of the game and passed a concussion test. He was in Tuesday's lineup before further tests at the Cleveland Clinic revealed the concussion.

"Michael is doing very well," Indians skipper Terry Francona said. "Everything that has been introduced to him today . . .the reaction tests . . .he's done very well. Every activity that has been given to him today he's handled without any occurrences. With that being said, the doctors, trainers and Michael think that Saturday is realistic."

The 27-year-old Brantley is having a breakout season, hitting .323 with 11 home runs, 46 RBIs, 49 runs scored, nine stolen bases, and a .391 on-base percentage.
