CHICAGO (AP) — Jeff Samardzija threw six shutout innings to outduel Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber and the Chicago White Sox beat the Cleveland Indians 6-0 on Wednesday.

First baseman Jose Abreu’s first-inning solo home run gave Samardzija early run support. The two-out homer was his second in two days. Abreu finished 2 for 4 with three RBIs.

Samardzija (1-1) faced the Indians for the first time in his career and allowed six hits, walked two and struck out three.

It was Samardzija’s first shutout since going eight innings on Sept. 17, 2014, for the Oakland A’s in a 6-1 loss to the Texas Rangers.

Abreu added a two-run double in the seventh to chase Kluber (0-2).

Kluber gave up a career-high 13 hits and six earned runs. He struck out six, walked one and had two wild pitches.
