Konerko leads White Sox over Indians
White Sox have scored 81 runs over last 12 games
Paul Konerko had four hits, Dayan Viciedo homered in his third straight game, and the Chicago White Sox pounded Derek Lowe and the short-handed Cleveland Indians 14-7 Saturday for their eighth win in nine games.
Chicago scored four in the first and four more while chasing Lowe in the third after Cleveland scored five in the top half. Viciedo's two-run homer made it 8-5, and the White Sox pulled away late after Cleveland got within one, tying a season high with their fourth straight win.
They now trail the first-place Indians by just 1 1-2 games in the AL Central and will try to complete the sweep on Sunday, after another impressive day at the plate.
They set season highs for hits (17) and runs and have scored 81 over the past 12 games.
