CLEVELAND (AP) — Zach McAllister pitched six innings for his first major league win as the Cleveland Indians roughed up a far-from-perfect Philip Humber in an 8-6 win Monday over the Chicago White Sox in the first game of a day-night doubleheader.
McAllister, recalled from Triple-A Columbus to make his fifth career start, allowed just two earned runs and six hits.
The Indians took their turn pounding Humber (1-2) , who hasn’t been sharp since pitching the 21st perfect game in major league history on April 21. Since then, he has allowed 20 runs in 13 1-3 innings and gone 0-2 with a no-decision.
Michael Brantley and Casey Kotchman drove in three runs each for the AL-Central leading Indians. Travis Hafner homered and hit his first triple in nearly five years.
