Taking the ball one day earlier than he was originally scheduled, McAllister gave up just one run over 6 1/3 innings to improve his record to 6-7. His ERA of 3.59 matches that of Tribe ace Justin Masterson.
Lonnie Chisenhall doubled the Tribe lead by launching a two-run home run to right field.
Nick Swisher provided the Indians’ final run with a solo home run to right in the ninth inning.
With the victory, Cleveland moves to 6.5 games out of first place in the AL Central Division and 4.5 games out of the final wild-card spot.
The Tribe will send Danny Salazar to the mound tonight, giving the rookie an extra day of rest. The game will start at 10:05 Eastern.
