This game looked a lot like the other two contests of this series, but was a lot more damaging. With the White Sox (26-22) victory, they are now just one-half game behind the Tribe (26-21) in the AL Central. Oy.

Some of the highlights from today: Ubaldo Jimenez continued with his early-inning struggles, Lou Marson got hit in the mouth with a pitch and Johnny Damon hit his first home run as an Indian. That’s about it. It all adds up to yet another awful pitching performance en route to a big loss for CLE.
