Kluber, Swisher key Indians’ win

Published 10:53pm Sunday, July 13, 2014

CLEVELAND (AP) — Corey Kluber allowed four runs in six innings, and Nick Swisher hit a two-run homer in the fifth, leading the Cleveland Indians to a 7-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Friday night.

Kluber (9-6), left off the AL All-Star team despite a strong first half, wasn’t his usual dominant self but pitched well enough to win. The right-hander has won three of his last four decisions. Cody Allen struck out the side in the ninth for his 11th save.

Swisher’s homer off Hector Noesi (3-7) to center field broke a 4-4 tie.

Before Swisher’s home run, the biggest cheer from the crowd of 24,652 came when the Indians put a message on the scoreboard welcoming home NBA superstar LeBron James, who announced he was returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Chants of “LBJ” were heard later in the game.
