GOODYEAR, Ariz. – Tyler Flowers and George Kottaras had key doubles in the White Sox's three-run fourth inning Sunday, spoiling T.J. House's day after he was told he earned a spot in Cleveland's rotation, as the Sox beat the Indians. 4-1.

Flowers doubled to score Gordon Beckham and later scored along with J.B. Schuck on a long double by Kottaras to give the Sox a 3-1 lead.

The Indians scored an unearned run off Sox starter Scott Carroll in the first inning. Jason Kipnis walked and Michael Brantley, returning after he sat out with a sore back, singled. Beckham's wild throw on an attempted double play allowed Kipnis to score.

Carroll allowed just two hits in three innings.

House, who will start on April 12 against Detroit, allowing four runs and six hits in six innings. The left-hander has had one bad inning spoil each of his last three starts but pitched well enough to convince the Indians he belongs in the rotation.

Michah Johnson had two hits for the Sox and had a stolen base taken away when Beckham interfered with Roberto Lopez's throw.
