Recap: Cleveland vs. Chicago WSox

Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) - Nick Swisher hit the game-winning single in the bottom of the ninth inning and the Cleveland Indians defeated the Chicago White Sox, 1-0, on Friday.

The Indians recorded just three hits, but Swisher's single to right was all the offense Cleveland needed.

Justin Masterson (3-0) pitched a complete game shutout, allowing just five hits and a walk in his outing. In three starts this season, he has allowed just one run over 22 innings and has an ERA of 0.41.

"He's attacking the zone," said Indians manager Terry Francona. "He's quick to the plate when the runner gets on. It was fun to watch."

Jose Quintana got the start for the White Sox, and he pitched seven innings of one-hit baseball. However, Jesse Crain (0-1) allowed the lone run and earned the loss.

"He was aggressive," said White Sox manager Robin Ventura. "He was getting ahead, he was painting. I think maybe the weather had a little bit to do, it's not an easy time to hit when it's cold, but pitcher's like it and he was sharp."

Swisher's single came with two outs in the inning.

Crain came in to relieve Matt Thornton on the mound and struck out Drew Stubbs to start the frame, but then allowed a double to Michael Bourn.

Asdrubal Cabrera was next and he grounded out to second, but Bourn advanced. Jason Kipnis was intentionally walked as Swisher came to bat. He knocked it into right field and brought Bourn home, ending the game.

John Tavares recorded four goals and Jakub Voracek followed with three scores and three assists, as Team Toews walked away with a 17-12 decision over Team Foligno in the 2015 All-Star Game from Nationwide Arena, the highest-scoring mid-season event in league history.

Corey Crawford -- the last of three goaltenders to give up four goals -- stopped 14-of-18 shots in the third period to earn the win. Ryan Johansen from Team Foligno picked up the MVP award, pacing his side with two goals and as many assists. Patrick Kane and Steven Stamkos added two goals and one assist apiece, while Claude Giroux totaled three points on a tally and two helpers. Marc-Andre Fleury took the loss, charged with seven goals on 16 shots in the second period.
