CLEVELAND (AP) Justin Masterson pitched neatly into the eighth inning and the Cleveland Indians beat the White Sox 2-0 Saturday night in a game highlighted by Chicago rookie Jose Abreu's snazzy glove toss.

Abreu, who leads the majors in homers and RBIs, struck out with two runners on base to end the eighth. Earlier, the Cuban first baseman made the play of the day.

Abreu fielded Lonnie Chisenhall's grounder in the sixth and, unable to get the ball out of his mitt, flipped the glove about 10 feet to pitcher Scott Carroll covering the bag for the out.

Masterson (1-1) held the AL's highest-scoring offense in check, allowing four hits and striking out six in his seventh start of the season. The right-hander won for the first time since last Aug. 21.
