It’s only fitting that the greatest shortstop in Indians history, 44-year-old Omar Vizquel (11-time gold glove winner), was the one who hit into the 1-6-4-3 DP.
The Sox swept the two-game set and are now just five games under .500 and eight games behind the Indians. Winning those two games put them in a much better position to stay relevant in the A.L. Central battle.
The White Sox host the Los Angeles Dodgers to open their interleague schedule Friday night. The Sox played their Camelback Ranch-mates four times this spring. The Dodgers won three of those matchups in Cactus League play.
