Brantley, Santana spark Indians in 12-5 win

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND (AP) - Michael Brantley homered and drove in three runs, Carlos Santana also homered and the Cleveland Indians broke a six-game losing streak with a 12-5 win over the Chicago White Sox on Friday night.

Cleveland's struggling offense, which scored 13 runs on an 0-6 road trip, finally broke loose.

Brantley hit a leadoff homer in the fifth and added a two-run single in the sixth. Santana hit a solo homer in the second and had an RBI single in a five-run first, while Ryan Raburn and Yan Gomes each drove in two runs.

Danny Salazar (1-3) was charged with five runs, three earned, in five innings and earned his first win of the season.

Jose Abreu hit his major-league leading 11th homer in the fifth, but the White Sox couldn't overcome a shaky start by John Danks (2-2), who allowed eight runs in five innings.
