White Sox Stumble With 4-3 Loss To Indians

CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago White Sox gave Detroit an opening to tie for the AL Central lead when Gordon Beckham hit into a game-ending forceout with the potential tying run on second base Tuesday in a 4-3 loss to the Cleveland Indians.

Down 4-0 in the fourth inning, the White Sox closed within a run when Paul Konerko homered off Chris Perez leading off the ninth. Perez walked a pair of batters with two outs, and Beckham grounded to shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera, who threw to second baseman Jason Kipnis for the force.

Chicago (82-72) has held sole possession of the division lead since Sept. 3. Detroit (81-72) hosted Kansas City on Tuesday night.
