By The Associated Press
CLEVELAND - Carlos Santana hit a three-run homer and Oscar Mercado had a two-run single as the Cleveland Indians beat the Chicago White Sox 5-3 to complete a doubleheader sweep.

Santana’s first inning blast helped spoil the return of White Sox pitcher Carlos Rodon from Tommy John surgery.

The left-hander gave up five runs in 3 2/3 innings in his first appearance since May 1, 2019.

Mercado drove in Franmil Reyes and Domingo Santana in the fourth, extending Cleveland’s lead to 5-1.

James McCann hit a solo homer for Chicago in the second and Jose Abreu added another in the sixth off Adam Plutko.

Rookie Cam Hill earned his first save with a perfect ninth.
