Clevelinks: Cleveland Indians Down the Chicago White Sox, 6-2


Indians bats awaken in 6-2 win over ChiSox

The Cleveland Indians offense broke out with a six-run performance, and

Carlos Carrasco

was solid in his short outing as the Tribe topped the Chicago White Sox 6-2 on Tuesday night. An early solo home run allowed to Jose Abreau was all the damage the Sox would manage off Carrasco. In his first start since returning from being struck in the jaw by a line drive, Carrasco was on a pitch-count and exited after only five innings.

The bullpen once again started to make things interesting as Zach McAllister allowed three two-out singles to make it 6-2. Terry Francona then went to Nick Hagadone, who allowed Adam LaRoche to reach on an error. Bryan Shaw would come in to finally clean up the inning with a strikeout of Avisail Garcia.

Although the Tribe had a solid offensive performance, scoring six runs on Tuesday–it’s been a tough go of it for the offense so far this season. The Indians may be getting help soon, as Nick Swisher and Zach Walters both are expected to begin rehab assignments this week. Walters begins today while an announcement on Swisher has yet to be announced.

Indians top prospect Francisco Lindor has gotten off to a slow start in Columbus, but nobody is worried, especially Lindor himself. In 10 games, he’s hitting just .212 after a solid spring that saw him hit .297. But Lindor feels he’s having quality at-bats and not striking out, which to him is a sign it’s not a slump. Even with the struggles of the offense, talk of Lindor’s promotion have been minimal.
