CLEVELAND (AP) — Adam Eaton hit a two-run homer and José Abreu had a sacrifice fly in the eighth inning to give the Chicago White Sox an 8-6 win over Cleveland in the first game of a doubleheader. Indians starter Triston McKenzie struck out eight straight hitters to set a club record. Eaton, who returned to the lineup after missing several games with a tight hamstring, followed Abreu’s fly with his fifth homer, a shot to right-center of James Karinchak. The AL Central-leading White Sox won their fourth straight and improved to 7-1 in their last eight. Cleveland’s César Hernández homered twice but had two errors.
