A Great Trip Ends on a Sour Note as Indians Lose to White Sox 6-2: Three Takeaways from the Loss

1. Salazar’s Struggles

It was not a good day for Indians starter Danny Salazar (1-2), as after back-to-back shutouts he was hoping to follow that up with a solid outing for the Tribe going for the sweep, and it just didn’t happen.

The Indians starter allowed four runs on seven hits in five innings, with a lot of it coming early, with the Sox breaking through with three first inning runs to put the Tribe behind the 8-ball.

An error by Abraham Almonte and a walk right away spelled trouble for Salazar, and it just looked like he didn’t have the same zip as the last two days with Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco being able to do whatever they wanted against the Sox.

Salazar was able to keep the Indians in the game, but their offense just didn’t have it as well Sunday against Sox starter Derek Holland.

The Tribe starter will be back on the mound Friday night at home against the Mariners.
