CHICAGO – Joe Crede hit two home runs, including a game-winning shot leading off the 10th inning, and the Chicago White Sox increased their lead in the AL Central to 31/2 games with a 7-6 victory over the Cleveland Indians.

Chicago snapped the Indians’ six-game winning streak and sent them to their second loss in 15 games. The three-game series ends Wednesday night.

Crede turned on a 1-0 pitch from David Riske (3-4), sending it an estimated 422 feet to left for his 19th homer. It was the fifth game-ending homer of Crede’s career and his first since last September against Kansas City.

Dustin Hermanson (2-4) pitched a scoreless 10th for the win.

The White Sox scored three runs in the seventh to take a 6-5 lead, but Cleveland tied it against Bobby Jenks in the ninth.
