Tribe Uses Homers to Set Sale; Indians 3, White Sox 2

The Indians beat Chris Sale and the White Sox, 3-2, Monday afternoon as Trevor Bauer pitched seven strong innings and the Tribe hit three solo homers.

Bauer got into trouble in the second inning, walking four – including three straight – and allowing the Sox to take a 2-0 lead. But after that, Chicago batters were just 2-for-17 off Bauer from the third through seventh innings.

Bauer’s recovery gave the offense enough time to scratch three runs across against Sale: Mike Aviles and Ryan Raburn hit solo homers in the fourth and Raburn did it again in the sixth for the final margin.

Raburn has hit 20 homers against the Sox in his career and 13 at U.S. Cellular Field; his four homers off Sale in his career are tied for the most by any player.

W: Trevor Bauer (11-11)

L: Chris Sale (12-8)

S: Cody Allen (29)

HR: Aviles (5, 4th inning off Sale 0 on, 0 Out); Raburn 2 (7, 4th inning off Sale 0 on, 1 Out; 6th inning off Sale 0 on, 1 Out)
