White Sox Lose Final Home Game of Season to Cleveland 10-2
White Sox drop series finale to the Cleveland Indians in the team’s final home game of the season on Wednesday night.
The Chicago White Sox lost their final home game of the season on Wednesday night as they were defeated 10-2 by the Cleveland Indians. The Sox had a bullpen game with Jace Fry getting the start against Cleveland. However, it wasn’t enough as the Indians cruised to a series victory over the Sox.
With Fry starting on Wednesday, the Indians would jump out to an early 1-0 lead in the first inning. Francisco Lindor hit a solo home run off Fry in the first inning to put the Indians ahead. Cleveland would never trail in this game as they led 10-0 going into the ninth inning.
Indians starter Shane Bieber kept the Sox in check as he held a no-hitter through 4.2 innings. Yoan Moncada would break up the no-hitter in the fifth inning with two outs after hitting a high chopper that bounced off of home plate. Moncada raced to first base as Bieber had to wait for the ball to come down before trying to attempt a throw.
