Surging Indians aim for fifth straight win

Sep 12, 2007 - 1:42 PM Cleveland (85-60) at Chi White Sox (61-84) 2:05 pm EDT

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- Grady Sizemore looks to lead the Cleveland Indians to their fifth consecutive victory when they visit the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday in the finale of a three-game series.

Sizemore has two hits in each of his last four contests. The 25-year-old center fielder is batting .277 with 23 home runs and 73 RBI. Sizemore also is among the American League-leaders with 32 stolen bases and 110 runs scored.

The Indians, who lead the AL Central Division by 6 1/2 games over the Detroit Tigers (79-67), are 20-6 since August 15 and have won 14 of their last 19 road games. The club has dominated the White Sox this year, defeating them 11 times and winning five of the six series.

Cleveland will send Jake Westbrook (5-8, 4.30 ERA) to the mound Wednesday. The 29-year-old Westbrook did not receive a decision after yielding two runs and five walks over 7 2/3 innings.

The White Sox will counter with Javier Vazquez (11-8, 3.98), who is winless in his last three starts. Vazquez will hope to give manager Ozzie Guillen his first victory since signing a multi-year contract extension through 2012.

Juan Uribe was the one bright spot in Chicago's 8-3 setback to Cleveland on Tuesday, blasting two homers.
