CLEVELAND -- Jason Donald's RBI single against Nate Jones scored Lonnie Chisenhall from second in the 12th inning, and the Cleveland Indians defeated the White Sox 4-3 on Tuesday night.

The Indians rallied in the ninth inning against Jake Peavy to force extra innings. After Dayan Viciedo broke a ninth-inning tie with a two-run home against Indians closer Chris Perez, Travis Hafner hit a pinch home run with Michael Brantley on first to tie it 3-3.

Peavy, in what could have been his last game as a White Sox, allowed three runs on three hits. He struck out eight and walked one and finished with 219 innings pitched this season. Peavy, who received a no-decision, finished with an 11-12 record and 3.37 ERA.

Shin-Soo Choo homered in the fourth to give the Indians a 1-0 lead. Orlando Hudson singled in Dewayne Wise in the sixth to tie it 1-1.

Matt Thornton (4-10), who gave up a bloop double down the left-field line to Chisenhall with one out in the 12th, took the loss.

The Sox and Indians close out their seasons on Wednesday night. The Sox were eliminated from contention in the AL Central on Monday night.
