Reynaldo Lopez pitched a one-hitter for his first complete game in 75 career big league starts, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Cleveland Indians 7-1 Thursday. Cleveland lost for the fifth time in seven games. The Indians began the day 5 1/2 games behind AL Central-leading Minnesota and tied with Oakland for the second AL wild card, a half-game behind Tampa Bay. After spitting four games against Chicago, the Indians headed to Minnesota for a three-game series. A 25-year-old right-hander, Lopez (9-12) allowed an RBI double in the second to Kevin Plawecki that scored Jake Bauers, who had walked. Lopez struck out 11, walked three, retired his final 16 batters and threw 109 pitches.
