Chicago,  IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Moises Sierra's RBI single in the bottom of 
the ninth lifted the White Sox to 3-2 win over Cleveland, as the White 
Sox completed the three-game sweep Wednesday. 

Tyler  Flowers  reached on  a throwing  error by third  baseman Mike Aviles to 
begin  the ninth.  Pinch-runner Leury Garcia stole second before Marcus Semien 
flied out to right that enabled Garcia to advance to third. 

Bryan  Shaw (1-1) worked the count full to Sierra, who ripped the payoff pitch 
just past Lonnie Chisenhall at first to give Chicago the win. 

Ronald  Belisario  (3-3) earned the win  despite blowing his third save of the 
season. 

"To  win  games you  would like  to talk about  different people every night," 
White  Sox manager Robin  Ventura said. "It takes a whole roster to be able to 
do  it. We went  out and started getting guys, bringing them in. These guys 
have been a good fit so far." 

The White Sox had not swept the Indians since May 25-27, 2012. Chicago starter 
Hector Noesi has waited even longer just to taste victory. 

Noesi  was once again dealt a no-decision, although he allowed just one run on 
five  hits with five  strikeouts over 7 1/3 frames. He hasn't won since May 6, 
2012 when he was a member of the Seattle Mariners. 

The right-hander has lost 14 decisions since his last victory and has appeared 
in 40 games, including Wednesday's start. 

Cleveland starter T.J. House pitched well in his second major league start and 
was in line for the win, but the bullpen couldn't make it stand. 

House  was charged with  one run on five hits with eight strikeouts over 6 1/3 
innings. 

"He  pounded the  zone (and)  worked both  sides of  the plate,"  said Indians 
manager  Terry Francona of House. "He was really good. On a night we are going 
home  pretty  frustrated, that  was about  as encouraging a  start as you will 
see." 

His  night came  to a  close  after he  allowed back-to-back  singles to  open 
the  seventh, but Alexei Ramirez was nabbed at second trying to advance on his 
base hit. 

Scott  Atchison came  on and got Flowers  to ground out softly to second which 
kept Adam Dunn from scoring on the play. 

Semien  then slapped a  3-2 slider up the middle that plated Dunn and tied the 
game at 1-1. 

Gordon  Beckham drew a one-out walk from Cody Allen in the eighth before Conor 
Gillaspie poked a single out to left-center that put runners at the corners. 

Dayan  Viciedo then walked to load the bases and Dunn skied a fly ball to left 
that plated Beckham for a 2-1 lead. 

Cleveland  had runners on first and second with two outs in the ninth when Yan 
Gomes,  who was down to his final strike, ripped a single to right that plated 
Brantley to tie the game. 

Earlier,  Jason Giambi stroked his second homer of the season with two outs in 
the second to open the scoring.
