CHICAGO (AP) - Tim Anderson delivered a tiebreaking single, José Abreu was hit in the head by a pitch with the bases loaded and the Chicago White Sox rallied for two runs in the eighth inning to top the Cleveland Indians 6-4 after acquiring All-Star closer Craig Kimbrel from the crosstown Cubs.

Anderson’s hit put Chicago ahead 5-4, then Indians reliever James Karinchak plunked Abreu in the helmet with a fastball to force in another run.

Both benches and bullpens emptied briefly, but no punches were thrown and the reigning AL MVP stayed in the game.

Yoán Moncada had a bizarre solo homer among his three hits as the AL Central leaders moved nine games ahead of second-place Cleveland.
