Marcum Completes Comeback with Win of Chicago; Indians 4, White Sox 3

Shaun Marcum pitched 6.2 innings, allowing only two solo home runs, leading the Indians to a 4-3 win over the White Sox in Wednesday, the Indians second straight win.

Marcum was making his first MLB start since July 6 2013; he pitched five innings of one-run relief on April 12 for the Indians before returning to Class AAA Columbus.

Jose Ramirez reached base four times, with two singles and two walks, and Michael Brantley had the eventual game-winning double in the seventh. Cody Allen allowed a run in the ninth before converting the save.
