Recap: Cleveland vs. Chicago WSox

Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) - Jason Donald singled home the winning run in the 12th inning as the Cleveland Indians took a 4-3 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday.

With Matt Thornton (4-10) on the mound for Chicago, Lonnie Chisenhall doubled to start the Indians' half of the frame and Russ Canzler was intentionally walked. Nate Jones then entered the game and struck out Jack Hannahan, but Donald singled to left to bring home the winning run.

Travis Hafner hit a two-run home run while Shin-Soo Choo added a solo homer for the Indians, who have won five of their last seven. Justin Masterson went six innings in the start and gave up a run on four hits, while Chris Seddon (1-1) worked a scoreless 12th for the win.

"This is a nice run we're putting together here towards the end," said Masterson. "The energy is good and we've been having fun. You hate seeing the end, but this makes it a little more enjoyable."

Dayan Viciedo hit a two-run homer and Orlando Hudson went 3-for-6 with an RBI for the White Sox, whose 3-11 free-fall since Sept. 19 saw them lose the AL Central to Detroit. Jake Peavy pitched eight-plus innings and gave up three runs on three hits with a walk and eight strikeouts.

"We just can't catch a break right now," said Peavy. "It's been tough because we want to win, but things just aren't going our way."

Choo led off the fourth with his 16th home run of the season to give the Indians a 1-0 lead.

Chicago, though, tied the game in the sixth, when DeWayne Wise doubled with one out and Hudson followed with a single to center to plate Wise.

The White Sox took the lead in the ninth, as Dan Johnson walked off of Chris Perez to start the inning and Viciedo then hit his 24th home run of the year for a 3-1 advantage.

It didn't last, though, as Michael Brantley singled to start the bottom of the ninth and Hafner's pinch-hit home run, his 12th round-tripper of the season, sent the game to extra innings.
