Charlie Tilson ripped a go-ahead, two-run double in the third inning, and the Chicago White Sox pulled away for a 6-1 win over the visiting Cleveland Indians on Friday night. Jose Abreu and Yolmer Sanchez also drove in one run apiece for the White Sox, who increased their season-high winning streak to five games. Chicago scored six-plus runs for the third straight game.

Francisco Lindor hit a solo shot to lead off the game for the Indians' lone run. Cleveland has dropped two in a row, five of seven and nine of 12. White Sox right-hander Dylan Covey (1-4) allowed one run on eight hits in six innings. He walked one and struck out five while earning his first victory since Aug. 31, 2018.

Indians right-hander Trevor Bauer (4-5) gave up six runs (two earned) on nine hits in seven innings. He walked one and struck out eight and was not helped by a shaky Cleveland defence that committed four errors. Cleveland jumped to a 1-0 lead when Lindor blasted the third pitch of the game into the right-field bleachers. The shot marked his 15th career homer to lead off a game, including his third of the season. The White Sox took control from there. Chicago went ahead 2-1 in the third when Tilson doubled to score Yoan Moncada and Yonder Alonso.

One inning later, the White Sox added three more runs. Abreu hit a sacrifice fly to deep centre field to score Sanchez. An error by Indians first baseman Carlos Santana on a ball hit by Alonso allowed Seby Zavala and Leury Garcia to come home. Bauer unleashed a string of expletives after Santana's error, but his frustrations were far from over.

Tim Anderson reached on a throwing error by Indians third baseman Mike Freeman with one out in the fifth. Anderson stole second base and scored on a single by Sanchez to increase Chicago's lead to 6-1. Zavala notched his first big league hit in the fourth inning. The White Sox promoted the San Diego State product a week ago to fill in for Wellington Castillo, who went on the seven-day concussion list.
