CHICAGO (AP) -Jim Thome hit his 499th home run, connecting against Cleveland's Jake Westbook in the fourth inning Wednesday.
Thome, who has 27 homers this season, would become the 23rd to reach 500 and the third this season, following Frank Thomas and Alex Rodriguez. Thome added a two-run double in the fifth inning.
Thome homered in three straight games last week, hitting No. 498 Sunday off Minnesota's Juan Rincon. He has six homers against Cleveland, one of his former teams.
