(Sports Network) - The Cleveland Indians try for their first three-game winning streak of the season today when they battle the Chicago White Sox in the finale of a two-game set at U.S. Cellular Field.
The Tribe picked up an extra-inning victory on Tuesday evening. Casey Blake snapped a tie with an RBI double in the 10th inning to lead Cleveland to an 11-7 win over Chicago.
Omar Vizquel finished with four hits and Ronnie Belliard added three for the Indians, who overcame a two-run deficit then rallied for four in the 10th to post their second straight victory. Rafael Betancourt (2-2) struck out three in two shutout innings for the win.
Matt Lawton had two hits and drove in three runs for Cleveland, which scored twice in the eighth to force a 7-7 tie. Victor Martinez led off the inning, against Cliff Politte, with his fourth homer of the season. Then after loading the bases on a single and two walks, Vizquel lofted a sacrifice fly to left off Damaso Marte.
The Indians will send young righthander Jason Davis to the mound today. Davis had dropped his last two starts and is 0-2 on the season. Last Friday in Detroit, he was pounded for six runs and 10 hits while lasting five frames in a 17-3 setback to the Tigers.
Davis owns a career record of 1-2 with a 6.26 ERA in four career starts against Chicago. Davis is 1-1 in two career starts at U.S. Cellular Field.
This is the first series of the season between these teams. Last year, the White Sox went 11-8 against the Tribe and won seven of nine contests in Chicago.
