The Chicago White Sox evened their series with the Cleveland Indians by a 6-2 score, with two of those six runs coming off the bat of Jose Abreu with a MLB-leading 29th home run in the fourth inning.
It was a solid win by the White Sox on Saturday, with not only the homer by Abreu, which put him at 73 RBIs on the season, but the Sox added one run in the sixth and three more in the ninth for their six total runs.
The Indians had one run innings in the seventh and eighth.
It was the good Scott Carroll (4-5) on Saturday on the mound for the White Sox.
Though he pitched just five innings, he allowed no runs on two hits and one walk. It was the exact start the White Sox needed from Carroll, who struck out three, as he didn’t put the White Sox offense in a hole where they couldn’t dig out of like he has in previous starts.
The loss went to Zach McAllister (3-5) in seven innings pitched. He allowed three runs on four hits and two walks. McAllister struck out two.
This was the type of win the White Sox needed on a Saturday, a day where for most of the year they haven’t had much success.
Both teams are going for the series win in the final game before the All-Star break on Sunday.
