September 7th versus Cleveland Indians

Short Take:   Cleveland Jumps All Over Sox Starting Bullpen

The White Sox faced the streaking Cleveland Indians in a game that was to feature Sox ace-in-training Carlos Rodon against potential Cy Young winner Corey Kluber. The Indians tied a team record of 14 consecutive wins Wednesday night and won their record-setting 15th Thursday with an 11-2 win over the Sox.

I got home a little later than I hoped and turned on the game five minutes into the top of the first, only to find Carlos Rodon a last minute scratch, Mike Pelfrey pitching on 2-days rest, and the Sox down 4-0. The Indians offense hit for the cycle in that five minutes I missed, with Francisco Lindor tripling to start the game, Austin Jackson doubling, Edwin Encarnacion homering, and singles from Lonnie Chisenhall and Yan Gomes.

The Sox looked like they would make a game of it in the bottom of the first as Yolmer Sanchez and Jose Abreu both sent line drive home runs deep into the outfield seats. For a few brief moments I was even trying to think of headlines for an unlikely Sox win (Kluber Klobbered was an early front runner) but that was unfortunately all the scoring they could muster and I was once again looking for losing headlines and movies. Sigh.

Cleveland added another run in the top of the second, two in the third, three in the seventh, and capped off the scoring with another run in the ninth. Pelfrey went four innings on the night, giving up 7 runs on 8 hits. Chris Beck went 2 2/3 innings in relief, giving up a run on three hits. Jace Fry came in to pitch the top of the 7th, giving up a single, hitting a batter, and allowing both to score on a Greg Allen home run. Catcher Rob Brantly made his pitching debut in the top of the ninth, giving up a Erik Gonzalez solo homer. Certainly not the pitching duel Sox fans had hoped for.

The Sox open a three-game weekend series against the San Francisco Giants, who also strong contenders for first pick in the 2018 draft.
