MLB roundup: Indians scratch 65-year itch against Sox

White Sox outfielder Alex Rios argues with home plate umpire Quinn Wolcott after striking out during the ninth inning Sunday in Chicago. The Indians completed their first four-game sweep of the White Sox in Chicago since 1948 with a 4-0 victory.
White Sox outfielder Alex Rios argues with home plate umpire Quinn Wolcott after striking out during the ninth inning Sunday in Chicago. The Indians completed their first four-game sweep of the White Sox in Chicago since 1948 with a 4-0 victory.

Chris Sale just can’t seem to catch a break.

Sale delivered another strong performance, striking out 10 while allowing three runs in eight innings Sunday, but the White Sox lost 4-0 as the Cleveland Indians completed their first four-game sweep in Chicago since 1948.

Sale (5-7) was perfect
through the first three innings before Drew Stubbs led off the fourth with a bunt single.
Stubbs scored on Ryan Raburn’s two-out
double, and the Indians
tacked on one more in the inning on Carlos Santana’s RBI single.

The Indians added a run off Sale in the fifth when Michael Brantley
led off with a single and scored on Lonnie Chisenhall’s groundout.

Sale went 0-5 with a 3.19 ERA, 53 strikeouts and nine walks in June, and hasn’t won since May 17 against the Angels.

Once again, Sale’s teammates had no solution for Justin Masterson
(10-6), who gave up six hits, struck out eight and walked one, blanking the White Sox for the second time this year.

Cubs 7, Mariners 6: Alfonso Soriano and Darwin Barney each doubled twice, and the Cubs built a six-run lead before holding off the Mariners in Seattle.

Anthony Rizzo drove in two runs, and the Cubs tied a season high by hitting six doubles.

Chicago led 7-1 after four. Its bullpen, which has blown 16 save chances this season, gave up three runs in the eighth.

Kevin Gregg pitched a hitless ninth for his 13th save.

Edwin Jackson (4-10) pitched into the seventh inning, allowing three runs and seven hits and striking out six.

Jeremy Bonderman (1-2) was chased after giving up six runs and six hits in 3 1/3 innings.

Athletics 7, Cardinals 5: Matt Carpenter and Carlos Beltran combined for six hits, each with a home run and three RBIs, and Allen Craig added a solo home run. The rest of the lineup didn’t fare as well.

Jed Lowrie and Josh Donaldson homered for the A’s, and Tommy Milone overcame a rocky start.

Jake Westbrook (4-3) suffered his first poor outing since coming off the DL, and gave up his second home run of the season as the Cardinals lost for the sixth time in eight games, their worst stretch of the season.
