CLEVELAND -- Corey Kluber allowed four runs in six innings, and Nick Swisher hit a two-run homer in the fifth, leading the Cleveland Indians to a 7-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Friday night. Patrick Eaves Jersey . Kluber (9-6), left off the AL All-Star team despite a strong first half, wasnt his usual dominant self but pitched well enough to win. The right-hander has won three of his last four decisions. Cody Allen struck out the side in the ninth for his 11th save. Swishers homer off Hector Noesi (3-7) to centre field broke a 4-4 tie. David Murphy also homered for Cleveland, his first since May 21. Before Swishers home run, the biggest cheer from the crowd of 24,652 came when the Indians put a message on the scoreboard welcoming home NBA superstar LeBron James, who announced he was returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Chants of "LBJ" were heard later in the game. Adam Dunn hit a leadoff homer in the fifth for Chicago, which has lost three straight. The Indians were helped by an overturned call on a replay in the fifth. Asdrubal Cabrera was originally called out trying to steal second, but manager Terry Francona challenged the call, and Cabrera was ruled safe after a review. Lonnie Chisenhalls single tied it before Swisher homered to centre. Francona and a trainer visited Kluber in the fourth after he backed up the plate, but he remained in the game. Kluber struck out five, walked two and gave up eight hits. Kluber was among the players in an online vote for the final spot on the All-Star team. The Indians massive marketing campaign for Kluber fell short, but he enters the break with a 3.01 ERA and is fourth in the AL with 142 strikeouts. Adrian Nietos RBI double and Leury Garcias run-scoring grounder in the second put Chicago in front. Murphys two-run homer tied it in the bottom of the inning. Adam Eatons RBI double in the fourth made it 3-2, but the Indians quickly tied it when Chris Dickerson drew a bases-loaded walk. Kluber retired the first batter in the second, but the next three reached base. Conor Gillaspie doubled, took third on a single and scored on Nietos double to left. Garcias grounder made it 2-0. Swisher singled with one out in the second, and Murphy homered to right, Eatons double to left-centre scored Garcia from first base in the fourth. Dunn homered to dead centre field, the 454th shot of his career. Noesi allowed six runs in 4 2-3 innings. White Sox All-Star Jose Abreu, who leads the majors with 28 homers, was 1 for 4 with a third-inning single. Carlos Santana had an RBI double in the seventh for Cleveland. NOTES: White Sox 2B Gordon Beckham, 1 for 30 in his last seven games, was given the night off. Beckham has been the subject of trade talks. "When you hear trade rumours, it can bother people enough to make it a distraction," manager Robin Ventura said. "It seems like Gordon needed a break." ... Cleveland optioned LHP T.J. House to the minors and called up RHP Austin Adams, a reliever. House will make a start at Single-A Mahoning Valley next week and be recalled following the All-Star break. ... The White Sox signed LHP Carlos Rodon, the No. 3 pick in the draft. ... RHP Zach McAllister (3-4) will be recalled from Triple-A Columbus by the Indians to start Saturday against RHP Scott Carroll (3-5). Ondrej Kase Jersey .com) - Australian Open champion Li Na, former Wimbledon winner Petra Kvitova and former world No. Custom Anaheim Ducks Jerseys . - Pittsburgh Steelers president Art Rooney II says the NFL has told the team it will not be docked a pick in this years draft for coach Mike Tomlins foray onto the field against Baltimore last November. http://www.officialduckshockeyauthentic.com/dustin-tokarski-jersey/ . -- Edwin Encarnacion hit a three-run homer, Colby Rasmus drove in two runs and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Detroit Tigers 9-4 on Saturday.BOSTON - Just like that, the Boston Red Sox have a starting rotation again.One day after acquiring a pair of starters, the Red Sox picked up a third, rebuilding their starting rotation this off-season almost as quickly as they took it apart during the summer.Hours after trading for Detroit right-hander Rick Porcello on Thursday, Boston signed righty Justin Masterson as a free agent. On Friday, the Red Sox acquired lefty Wade Miley from Arizona for righties Rubby De La Rosa and Allen Webster and infielder Raymel Flores.Were in a position where everyone knows we need to add quality starting pitching, general manager Ben Cherington told reporters on the teams second conference call of the night. Weve been able to acquire the three starters we have this week while really being able to maintain the top end of our young pitching.The Red Sox won the World Series in 2013 with a rotation that included Jon Lester, John Lackey, Jake Peavy and Felix Doubront. By midsummer it was obvious the team would not successfully defend its title in 14, and Cherington traded them all away to start planning for the future.Lester, who spent his entire career in the Red Sox organization until he was shipped to Oakland at the trading deadline, was courted to return as a free agent. But when the Chicago Cubs outbid Boston for the 31-year-old lefty, Cherington quickly executed a backup plan.Now, Masterson, Porcello and Miley will join holdover Clay Buchholz and one of Bostons young arms — perhaps Anthony Ranaudo or Brandon Workman — in a rotation that is so far lacking an ace.Masterson isnt sure they need one.I think we have an incredible staff, he said on the first call. Weve all had a bit of success, and I think ... well continue to do that.An all-star in 2012, Miley was the Diamondbacks opening day starter last season and went on to lead the team with 183 strikeouts and 201 1-3 innings pitched while posting an 88-12 record and 4. Nick Ritchie Jersey. 34 ERA. In four major league seasons, the 28-year-old lefty is 38-35 with a 4.34 ERA.The trade was a second salary-saving move for Arizona following the deal that sent catcher Miguel Montero to the Chicago Cubs. General manager Dave Stewart said he expects De La Rosa and Webster to be in the rotation. De La Rosa was 4-8 with a 4.43 ERA in 19 games for Boston last season. Webster was 5-3 with a 5.03 ERA in 11 starts for the Red Sox last year.Stewart told reporters in a conference call that the Diamondbacks were mulling whether to pursue high-priced pitchers James Shields and Max Scherzer.Masterson came up in the Red Sox system and spent part of two seasons in Boston before he was traded to Cleveland. He spent four more seasons there before he was sent to the St. Louis Cardinals this summer at the trading deadline.Although he has a 60-72 career record and a 4.24 ERA, Cherington said he was one of the best pitchers in the AL in 2011 and 2013. This season, he had a 5.88 ERA and spent time on the disabled list with right knee inflammation.Were very confident that whatever physical issues affected him in 2014 will be behind him, Cherington said.Cherington confirmed that Masterson, who bounced in and out of the bullpen during his first Boston stint, is slotted for the rotation this time around.But the pitcher said he knew that was something less than a guarantee.The assurance was that if I pitch the way Im supposed to, I will be a starter, he said. If Im not, the decision will be made. And I wont be happy anyway.NOTES: In a separate trade Friday, Boston obtained Zeke Spruill from the Diamondbacks for Myles Smith in a swap of right-handers. ... According to Major League Baseball, the eight All-Stars traded at the winter meetings were the most since at least 1998. That does not include Miley, whose deal wasnt announced until the meetings were over.
