The Indians beat Chicago 4-3 Tuesday afternoon

The Cleveland Indians beat the Chicago White Sox, 4-3, Tuesday afternoon behind the arm of starter Corey Kluber (2-4, 5.02). The Cleveland win cut the Chicago lead over Detroit in the AL Central to a half-game.

Kluber threw only 86 pitches in seven innings. The 26-year-old issued three walks and struck out four; his only two earned runs came off back-to-back solo shots from Chicago's A.J. Pierzynski and Dayan Viciedo to lead off the fifth inning.

Indians first baseman Russ Canzler opened up the scoring for the Tribe with a home run off Francisco Liriano in the second. Cleveland chased Liriano (6-12, 5.34) off the mound with two walks and two singles in the fourth that completed the Indians' scoring on the day.

Vinnie Pestano worked a scoreless eighth for the hold. Chris Perez gave up a Paul Konerko home run and two walks, but held on to notch his 37th save of the season.
