Abraham Almonte went 2-for-4 with two runs, including the game-winning run in the ninth inning, as the Indians came back to beat the White Sox 5-4 on Thursday.

Almonte led off the bottom of the ninth with a double and, after advancing to third on a passed ball, raced home to score the winning run on a Tyler Naquin sacrifice fly. The double was Almonte's second of the contest and 11th in 30 games. The 27-year-old has quietly become an everyday player for the Indians since returning from suspension in early July, forcing his way into the lineup with a .294/.319/.459 line in 30 games. He has just one homer and three steals in that time, so his fantasy upside is limited, but AL-only owners should take note.
