Johnson's 3 HRs lead White Sox past Indians 9-0
CHI WHITE SOX 9, CLEVELAND 0

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Dan Johnson doesn't save himself for the
season's final game. It just looks that way.



Johnson hit his first three homers of the year and his teammates
hit two more as the Chicago White Sox routed the Cleveland
Indians 9-0 on Wednesday night.



"There's not much of a greater feeling for me than watching a
ball going over the fence as you jog to first," said Johnson,
who hit 28 homers in the minors this year before the White Sox
purchased his contract on Sept. 1.



Gavin Floyd (12-11) gave up three hits over seven innings. He
struck out six, one short of getting 145 strikeouts for the
fifth straight season despite being on the disabled list twice.



Johnson twice connected for two-run homers off David Huff (3-1).
His 424-foot shot in the second inning was his first in more
than a year. His second made it 7-0 in the fifth, two batters
after Paul Konerko hit his 26th.



It was Johnson's fifth career multihomer game and first time he
hit three. He's the first player to hit three in a game against
Cleveland since Konerko in July 2009.



Dayan Viciedo hit his 25th homer, third in three nights and
sixth against Cleveland in the ninth, followed by Johnson's
third.



Johnson had not hit a homer since his dramatic pinch-hit shot
for Tampa Bay saved the Rays' 2011 season on the final night.
His two-out, two-strike solo drive in the ninth inning tied the
score at 7. The Rays had trailed 7-0 and beat the New York
Yankees 8-7 in 12 innings to make the playoffs.



"When I hit my first one tonight, somebody said, `What is it
about game 162 and you?"' Johnson said. "To be honest, I wasn't
thinking about that.



"When I went up in the ninth, A.J. (Pierzynski) told me that
Longo (Tampa Bay's Evan Longoria) hit three tonight. I was not
going to let him show me up."



Johnson hopes he can build on his performance next year, whether
it is with the White Sox or another organization.



"I always say, `Play every at-bat like it is your last,' "
Johnson said. "I went out and gave it my best. I try to do that
every day."



The Indians finished at 68-94, their third season of 90-plus
losses in four years, though the young team played hard in the
final week and went 3-3 for interim manager Sandy Alomar Jr.



"I gained a ton of experience in six days," said Alomar, who
will interview for the fulltime job on Thursday. "I'm kind of
glad I got the opportunity to manage the team. This was a
wonderful experience for myself."



Terry Francona, who guided Boston to World Series titles in 2004
and 2007, will make his pitch to the club Friday He's seeking to
return to managing after being dismissed a year ago when the Red
Sox folded and were edged out by Tampa Bay.



"I can't match Terry's resume and only control what I can do,"
Alomar said before the game. "I am confident I can do the job."



Chicago went 4-11 down the stretch to place second to Detroit
after leading the AL Central by three games on Sept. 18. Robin
Ventura's 85 wins are the most for a first-year White Sox
manager since Gene Lamont won 86 in 1992. Lamont is the Tigers'
third-base coach.



Before the game, general manager Kenny Williams addressed the
discouraging end to an otherwise good season.



"We didn't win enough games, so we're going home," Williams
said. "I can't say enough about these guys for their effort. I
can be only so disappointed for not closing this thing out. All
we had to do was take care of business on our last road trip.
We'd be getting prepared for the playoffs.



"You have to play your whole schedule. No excuses and none
needed. They literally gave everything they could."



Floyd allowed only a two-out single by Lonnie Chisenhall in the
first until Jason Kipnis lined a one-out single in the sixth.
The right-hander is 4-1 the past two years and 8-4 in his career
against Cleveland.



Hector Gimenez bounced a two-out RBI single up the middle to
make it 3-0 in the fifth.



Huff gave up nine hits over 4 2-3 innings. Only three runs
charged to him were earned. A throwing error by third baseman
Chisenhall made Chicago's entire four-run fifth unearned.



NOTES: Konerko is due to have left wrist surgery Thursday. ...
Cleveland RF Shin-Soo Choo extended his career-best hitting
streak to 13 games with an eighth-inning single. ... Chicago 1B
Adam Dunn did not play, finishing with 222 strikeouts, one shy
of the major-league record set by Mark Reynolds with Arizona in
2009. ... The Indians' 110 stolen bases are their most since
taking 113 in 2000. ... Cleveland scored 667 runs in 2012, down
37 from 2011. ... DH Travis Hafner went 1 for 4 and got a
standing ovation in his final at-bat of what could have been his
last game for Cleveland. The Indians likely will pay the
oft-injured 35-year-old a $2.7 million buyout instead of picking
up his $13 million option for 2013. ... Cleveland's total home
attendance of 1,603,596 was its second-lowest since 1992, not
quite 213,000 ahead of 2010.
