Cabrera home run gives Cleveland win over Chicago

Asdrubal Cabrera's leadoff home run in the fourth inning led Cleveland to a 4-3 victory over Chicago on Tuesday in the first game of a day-night doubleheader.
Fausto Carmona (7-15) allowed three runs in six innings and won for the first time since Aug. 17.
Travis Hafner and Kosuke Fukudome also homered off Gavin Floyd (12-12). Chicago has lost eight of its last nine games.
Cabrera's home run was his 24th of the season. Cabrera, who entered Saturday's game against Minnesota in an 0-for-20 slump, has eight hits in his last 13 at-bats. He has homered in consecutive games.
