CLEVELAND (AP) Jose Ramirez hit a two-run homer and drove in four runs, and the Cleveland Indians moved a step closer to the AL Central title with a 10-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Friday night.

The Indians dropped their magic number to three games for their first division title since 2007.

Trevor Bauer (12-8) overcame two-run homers by Melky Cabrera and Avisail Garcia. The right-hander allowed four runs in 7 2/3 innings.

Mike Napoli drove in two runs and became the first Cleveland player to reach 100 RBIs in nine years.
