CLEVELAND -- Mark Reynolds hit a grand slam in a big fifth inning and Zach McAllister pitched into the seventh, leading the Cleveland Indians to a 9-4 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Saturday.

Reynolds had an RBI single to give Cleveland a 3-2 lead in the third inning. He connected off White Sox ace Chris Sale in a six-run fifth and tied a career high with five RBIs.

The loss was Chicago's fifth straight, all on the road. The White Sox are 0-5 away from home for the first time since 1972.

McAllister (1-1) allowed three runs in 6 1-3 innings and retired 16 of 17 at one point. He allowed five hits and struck out six. Chicago scored two unearned runs in the first.

Nick Swisher and Yan Gomes each hit two-run homers for the Indians.
