Chicago White Sox Wrap-Up 4/12-14

Game 1: 4/12 – Chicago White Sox 0 – Cleveland Indians 1
Player of the Game: Justin Masterson (2), 10.44 POG Score
The Indians started the series off strong with a complete game shut out by Justin Masterson, who is now 3-0 with just a single run allowed this year. There was little offense by either side (just 8 total hits by both teams), but the Indians were able to group two of those together in the ninth inning for an exciting walk off win. Michael Bourn hit a one out double and Nick Swisher singled him in from third with two outs to win the game.

Game 2: 4/13 – Chicago White Sox 4 – Cleveland Indians 9
Player of the Game: Nick Swisher (2), 7.03
The bats came out a day after the two Central Division rivals combined to score just a single run. The Indians lead the scoring with three home runs (Yan Gomes, Mark Reynolds and Nick Swisher). Starting pitcher, Zach McAllister was strong as well, giving up just a single earned run that crossed the plate after reliever Bryan Shaw gave up a home run to Alejandro De Aza. The win moved the Indians to .500 on the year

Game 3: 4/14 – Chicago White Sox 3 – Cleveland Indians 1
Player of the Game: Michael Bourn (1), 3.80
The Indians won the series, but lost the finale as the bats went silent yet again. Michael Bourn lead off the game with a home run, but the Indians were kept off the boards from then on. Brett Myers threw his best game by far in 2013. He allowed just two runs on a home run to give up the lead in the sixth inning. Vinnie Pestano then failed for the first time of the year, giving up a solo home run to Alejandro De Aza (remember him?) for his first run allowed of the year.
