CLEVELAND — Carlos Rodon allowed one run while pitching into the eighth inning and the Chicago White Sox defeated the sloppy Cleveland Indians 4-3 on Saturday night.

Rodon (8-6) went 7 2-3 innings and beat Cleveland for the third time this season. Micah Johnson’s fifth-inning single broke a 1-all tie, handing the Indians a costly loss as they attempt to remain in the race for the second AL wild card.

A wild pitch by Carlos Carrasco (13-11) and two misplays by rookie shortstop Francisco Lindor hurt Cleveland, which entered play trailing Houston by four games in the wild-card chase.

The game ended when Abraham Almonte was picked off first base by closer David Robertson.

The Indians (73-74), who also trail the Angels and Twins in the wild-card standings, have alternated wins and losses in their last seven games.
