Paul Konerko gave the Sox a 1-0 lead in the third when he hit his 28th home run of the season off Cleveland starter Justin Masterson.

LaPorta's two-run shot in the fourth gave the Indians a 2-1 lead.

Chicago tied it in the bottom of the inning on an r-b-i single by Tyler Flowers.

Fukudome's triple drove home Shin-Soo Choo with the eventual game-winner in the sixth.

Fukudome would come around and score when Asdrubal Cabrera drew a bases-loaded walk.

Masterson picked up the win to improve to 10-7.

Chicago starter Phil Humber left the game in the second after being struck in the head by a line drive off the bat of Fukudome.

Humber walked off the mound under his own power.
