Indians Complete Doubleheader Sweep

May 07, 2012 -- 11:23pm

Cleveland,  OH  (Sports Network) -  Shelley Duncan's run-scoring double in the
bottom of the eighth inning helped  the Cleveland Indians take a 3-2 victory
over the Chicago White Sox and complete the sweep of a day-night doubleheader
at Progressive Field.
The Indians won the early portion, 8-6, behind a pair of two-run doubles by
Casey Kotchman and Shin-Soo Choo.
Michael Brantley and Jason Kipnis also knocked in runs for the Indians, who
won for the sixth time in seven games.

Joe Smith (2-1) earned  the win despite giving up the tying run in the top of
the eighth inning.  Tony Sipp tossed a scoreless ninth for his first save of
the year.
Matt Thornton (1-2)  allowed the deciding run to suffer the loss for Chicago,
which dropped its third straight game.
