CHICAGO (AP) — Rookie Jose Abreu connected for his second multihomer game in three days and the Chicago White Sox ended a 14-game losing streak against Cleveland, beating the Indians 7-3 Thursday night.
Abreu hit tape-measure drives in the second and fifth innings and drove in three runs. The Cuban slugger hit the first two homers of his major league career Tuesday in Colorado.
Abreu has four homers and 14 RBIs in 10 games.
Alexi Ramirez homered and drove in three runs for Chicago. The Indians had outscored the White Sox 102-45 in a streak that dated to last June.
White Sox starter John Danks (1-0) got off to a rocky start, but settled down to allow three runs and six hits in six innings.
