CHICAGO (AP) — Brian Goodwin homered with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Chicago White Sox a 2-1 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday.

Goodwin hit a 3-1 pitch from Nick Wittgren over the wall in right for his sixth home run of the season.

Liam Hendriks allowed just one hit in the ninth to complete a scoreless six-inning stint by the Chicago bullpen.

Reynaldo Lopez allowed one hit in three innings followed by Aaron Bummer and Craig Kimbrel, who each worked a hitless inning.

Chicago won two of three in the series to extend its AL Central lead to nine games. Myles Straw homered for the Indians.
