Viciedo HR in 9th Lifts White Sox Over Indians 4-3

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Dayan Viciedo hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning off John Axford, lifting the Chicago White Sox over the Cleveland Indians 4-3 Sunday and stopping a four-game losing streak.
Corey Kluber struck out a career-high 13 in eight innings, including a team-record seven straight. He allowed one run, three hits and two walks, leaving with a 3-1 lead after 110 pitches.
Axford (0-2) walked Gordon Beckham leading off the ninth and struck out Jose Abreu, who hit his major league- leading 12th home run in the first. Adam Dunn walked, and Viciedo homered to right on a 2-2 pitch, a 96 mph fastball.
Daniel Webb (2-0) pitched the eighth, and Matt Lindstrom threw a one-hit ninth for his fourth save in seven chances.
George Kottaras, the Indians' backup catcher, became the first player to homer in his first two plate appearances for Cleveland.
