A wild game it was at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago on an overcast Friday evening. It was far from a pitchers’ duel in the first game of a doubleheader between the Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox, as the two teams combined to score 29 runs. The Cleveland Indians drove home 19 of those 29 runs thanks in large part to every one of their batters logging at least one hit. Eight of their nine batters had more than one base hit. In fact, the Tribe posted 10 extra base hits including eight doubles, a triple and a home run. Cleveland walked away with a wild 19-10 win. Indians starting pitcher Trevor Bauer didn’t make it through the first inning. Chicago was able to knock him around for five runs and that was enough for Cleveland skipper Terry Francona to pull Bauer after only two-thirds of an inning and 49 pitches. White Sox pitcher Hector Santiago, on the other hand, wasn’t much better. He lasted 2.1 innings, allowing five earned runs on seven base hits, while walking three. Jason Kipnis led Cleveland by getting on base six times in seven plate appearances. Kipnis ended the game with three hits – all doubles – to go along with three walks, four runs scored, two RBIs and a stolen base. He’s currently riding an 11-game hitting streak. Chicago’s Alejandro De Aza walked three times while Gordon Beckham and Jeff Keppinger combined to go 6-for-9 with four RBIs and three runs scored for the Sox. Things got so bad at one point that the White Sox were forced to allow outfielder Caster Wells to throw and inning of relief, and he actually did a fantastic job. Wells worked an inning, allowing a walk, no hits and now runs while striking out one. All told, the numbers between the two American League Central rivals added up like this: 44 hits, 14 walks, 37 runners left on base and over 400 pitches thrown. The game lasted over four hours. The second game of the doubleheader was scheduled to take place 30 minutes following the conclusion of the first. Cleveland and Chicago will play a four-game series over the weekend in the windy city, with games three and four slated for Saturday and Sunday, respectively.
