The Cleveland Baseball Club was not able to come out victorious in their final game of the season against the Chicago White Sox.
Despite the fact the Cleveland Baseball Club tallied 10 hits, they only scored two runs as the Chicago White Sox scored five runs on 13 hits. Cleveland was not able to score against White Sox starter Lucas Giolito. Giolito limited Cleveland to five hits in 6 innings while striking out six. Triston McKenzie did not enjoy the same success as he last just 2.1 innings, allowing three runs on five hits and three walks.
The only two runs of the game for Cleveland came on a Myles Straw RBI single in the 7th, one of Straw’s four hits on the day, and a Harold Ramirez solo homer in the 8th. Harold Ramirez was the only other Cleveland batter with multiples hits in the game as Jose Ramirez, Owen Miller, Roberto Perez, and Oscar Mercado all went 1-4. Amed Rosario, Bobby Bradley, and Yu Chang combined to go 0-11 with three strikeouts.
Cleveland was simply no match for the White Sox as their offense really cannot keep up with a team like Chicago at this point in time. Perhaps things change next season, but a lot of work will have to be done in order for that to happen.
