CLEVELAND (AP) -The Indians are the first team in nearly 55 years to win a game with their only hit coming in their first at-bat.
Grady Sizemore led off Cleveland's 2-1 win over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday with a double. On April 23, 1952, the only hit for the St. Louis Browns in a 1-0 win over Cleveland was a first-inning leadoff triple by Bobby Young off Bob Feller. Young later scored on an error by Al Rosen, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
The Indians' output Sunday was the lowest hit total in a victory for the club since April 12, 1992, when they had no hits off Matt Young of Boston.
The win marked the 10th time in 15 seasons that a team won a game in which it had fewer than two hits. The Indians were only the fourth of those teams to win without a home run.
