In a bizarre piece of scheduling, the Indians and White Sox have gone almost four months since playing each other. The AL Central rivals played 12 times in the first months of the season, and haven't played since. When the Indians last played the White Sox, both clubs were contending for first place in the AL Central, with the Indians leaving Chicago on May 27th a half-game behind the White Sox. Things have certainly changed for the Indians since then, but Chicago has pretty much stayed on track.
The Indians came close to defeating the White Sox last night, but today they were able to finish the job. Like last night, the starting pitching was very good, allowing the Tribe to be in a position to win the game late.
