Indians Vs. White Sox Final Score: Cleveland Falls In Extras, 5-3

The Cleveland Indians fought back from a 3-0 deficit to force extra innings, but Chris Perez gave up two in the top half of the tenth and Addison Reed shut down the Indians in the bottom half to give the White Sox a 5-3 win after being swept in a doubleheader on Monday.

Down 3-0 heading into the home half of the eighth inning, the Indians chased White Sox starter John Danks with a pair of singles from Casey Kotchman and Jack Hannahan. The Indians loaded the bases against reliever Chris Sale when Alexei Ramirez committed an error and Jason Kipnis knocked in the Indians' first run on a ground out. After an Asdrubal Cabrera walk, Carlos Santana singled home the other two to tie the game.

Perez came on for the Indians in the tenth and immediately gave up a single to Paul Konerko. Alex Rios tripled him home with one out and Ramirez made up for his error earlier by bringing him home.

Kotchman, Santana and Hannahan each had two hits for the Indians. Justin Masterson threw six strong innings, only giving up two earned runs while striking out five.

The fourth and final game of this series will be Wednesday at 7:05 p.m. ET.
