Your favorite baseball team lost last night and is now back to .500 again at 8-8. It was a pretty typical 2021 game for Cleveland and Chicago, filled with poor batting by the former and poor defense by the latter. This one was a little different because Carlos Rodón surrendered both hits and runs, but other than that, blah. Jordan Luplow is awesome.
