Short Take:   Two Indian 3-run innings sink the Sox

The Sox took the field today with a chance to win a series and dent the playoff aspirations of the Cleveland Indians. Unfortunately, a pair of three-run innings by the Tribe sent the Sox down to a 6-3 defeat.

Inefficiency was the rule today. John Danks was inefficient with his pitches and lasted only five innings. Sox hitting was inefficient with many two-out doubles and wasted opportunities. Despite seven hits and four walks, the Sox could manage only three runs. Twice in the early innings, Tyler Flowers came up with two outs and two baserunners on. You already know how this ends, as it has all year. A flyout and a strikeout produced zero runs. But Cleveland starter Josh Tomlin was inefficient as well. Racking up 105 pitches in only 5-2/3 innings, Tomlin had to be bailed out by four Cleveland relievers.

The Indians got to John Danks in the 2nd inning. With one out, Yan Gomes singled on an inside pitch. Lonnie Chisenhall homered on a high fastball, but the rally wasn't over. Abraham Almonte doubled, and Jason Kipnis drove a deep fly ball to right that Trace Thompson was able to run down as Almonte moved to third. Francisco Lindor singled with two out, and the Sox trailed 3-0 early.

No more damage was done to Danks, but by the end of the 5th he had already thrown 110 pitches. Zach Putnam relieved in the 6th and promptly put the game out of reach. 2nd inning home team heroes Gomes and Chisenhall hit back-to-back doubles. Almonte drilled a hard line shot to right and again Trace Thompson picked up his pitcher with a good catch, but Chisenhall advanced to third. Kipnis walked, and Lindor hit a sacrifice fly to center field. Michael Brantley followed with the third double of the inning, scoring Kipnis, and the Sox trailed 6-0.

In the 7th, the Sox finally got on the board. Carlos Sanchez walked, and Adam Eaton doubled him to third. With ducks on the pond, Sox RBI leader Jose Abreu hit a bloop single to right, scoring the pair. The Sox finished up the game's scoring in the 8th. Trace Thompson doubled to lead off the inning. A pair of 4-3 groundouts by Avi Garcia and Alexei Ramirez drove him home.

The Sox travel to Detroit for an afternoon makeup game on Monday. Jeff Samardzjia will go against Kyle Ryan. The game will be broadcast on Comcast Sports Net starting at 12:08 pm.
