CLEVELAND — Carlos Rodon pitched shutout ball into the seventh inning and Carlos Sanchez homered for the second straight day, leading the Chicago White Sox to a four-game sweep with a 2-1 win over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday.

Rodon and Sanchez, both rookies, helped the White Sox finish off their first four-game sweep in Cleveland since July 14-17, 2005. Chicago outscored the Indians 26-5 and never trailed in the series.

Rodon (4-3) recorded the longest outing of his career and won for the first time since June 20. The left-hander allowed five hits in 6 2-3 innings, struck out nine and didn’t walk a batter.

Sanchez, who hit his first major league home run in Saturday’s 10-3 win, led off the third with a homer to center and was 3 for 3.

David Robertson worked out of trouble in the ninth for his 21st save. Giovanny Urshela led off with a triple, but Carlos Santana struck out. Pinch-hitter David Murphy’s groundout scored Urshela and Brandon Moss flied out to end the game.
