Indians defeat White Sox for record 15th straight win

Indians defeat White Sox for record 15th straight win”

Most impressively during their winning streak, the Indians have been without the services of Andrew Miller and Jason Kipnis, while midseason addition Jay Bruce hasn't played since a doubleheader September 1.

After a rough start, Trevor Bauer appears to be figuring things out.

Edwin Encarnacion, Francisco Lindor and Greg Allen also went deep for the Indians.

He pitched two scoreless innings. He went eight innings of 1-run ball against the Tigers in his last start.

Erik Gonzalez had a career game as he hit two home runs (came into the night with two career home runs in 68 prior games) alongside a sacrifice fly to finish with four RBIs (came into the night with seven RBIs in 68 prior games).

Coupled with Miami's 6-5 loss at Atlanta, the Nationals lowered their magic number for clinching the NL East title to four.

As is the case with most any long winning streak, everyone is pitching in, but special attention must go to the starting rotation, which is proving to be one of the best in baseball yet again. Brandon Kintzler and Ryan Madson each pitched a scoreless inning before Sean Doolittle worked a ideal ninth for his 16th save with the Nationals.

"The Orioles are already sitting back home waiting for us".

Wil Myers hit a two-run homer, and Clayton Richard and three relievers combined to throw an 11-hit shutout as San Diego salvaged the finale of the four-game series. The Braves began the comeback when pinch hitter Matt Adams doubled off closer Brad Ziegler (1-4).

Freddie Freeman was walked intentionally and moved to second on Lane Adams' grounder before Suzuki lined the winning hit past Brian Anderson at third base. Pinch-runner Nick Markakis scored the tying run when Ozzie Albies slapped a one-out double to right field.

Rex Brothers (3-3) got the win, striking out the side in the ninth.

So instead of sweating, University Windows Direct and their customers spent Thursday night having a party at Progressive Field in Cleveland rooting on the Indians.

In 11 starts since All-Star break, Pirates starter Jameson Taillon is 2-4 with 7.17 ERA and 1.79 WHIP including Thursday's dismal start against the Cubs.

Lindor led off the second inning with a solo home run before Gonzalez drilled a two-run homer off Pelfrey in the third inning to extend the lead to 7-2.
