CHICAGO -- Nick Swisher singled in the tiebreaking run in the eighth inning, and the Cleveland Indians beat the Chicago White Sox for the third time in less than 24 hours, 4-3 Saturday.

Swisher's homer in the ninth inning Friday night helped Cleveland secure a sweep of a marathon doubleheader Friday night.

This time, Cabrera, Jason Kipnis and Swisher hit three consecutive one-out singles off Jesse Crain (2-3) in the eighth. Crain allowed his first run since April 12. He went unscored upon for 30 outings before Saturday.

Joe Martinez (1-0), called up from Triple-A Columbus Saturday, earned the victory in his first major league appearance this season. He pitched two innings and held Chicago to two hits and no runs with one strikeout.
