Indians 8, White Sox 6 (10): Zach Walters belted a tiebreaking two-run homer in the top of the 10th inning as Cleveland sent host Chicago to its season-worst seventh straight loss.

Lonnie Chisenhall opened the 10th with a double and Walters made short work of Jake Petricka (0-4) when he crushed a 3-2 fastball deep into the seats in right-center field for his fourth blast in six games. Bryan Shaw (5-3) retired all seven batters he faced as the Indians improved to 14-8 in August.

Walters was one of five players with two hits for Cleveland, which remained 5 1/2 games behind Kansas City in the American League Central and closed within four of the second wild card. Alexei Ramirez went deep and finished with three RBIs for the White Sox (59-72), who dropped a season-worst 13 games under the .500 mark.

Carlos Santana and Mike Aviles contributed RBI hits during a three-run opening frame for the Indians, but Avisail Garcia plated two with a single up the middle in the bottom half. Michael Brantley halted a 3-for-30 slump and made it 4-2 in the second with a run-scoring ground-rule double down the line in left before Adam Eaton singled in a run in the fifth and scored on Ramirez's two-run shot to close the book on starter T.J. House.

Chicago's first and only lead of the game proved to be short-lived, however, as Aviles and Walters each reached base to begin the sixth and trotted home easily when Eaton misplayed the bounce on Roberto Perez's line-drive single to center. The White Sox rallied once again in the seventh, pulling even when Tyler Flowers singled and scored on Ramirez's groundout.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Chicago 1B Jose Abreu became the first player in White Sox history to record 30 doubles and 30 homers as a rookie with his two-base hit in the first. … House surrendered five runs on seven hits in 4 2/3 frames, while Chicago's Jose Quintana was tagged for six runs on nine hits over five innings. ... Eaton, who had been sidelined since Aug. 8 due to a strained right oblique, was activated before the start of the game and finished 1-for-4. CF Jordan Danks was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte in a corresponding move.
