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

2. Plate Issues

Francisco Lindor tried what he could to get the Indians back it the game with a solo homer in the 3rd to make it 3-1, but overall Derek Holland was solidly in control for most of the day against the Indians at the plate.

It probably shouldn’t have come as a shock, as now Holland is a lifetime 7-1 against the Indians.

There was one great chance for the Indians to get back into it, that came in the fifth when Austin Jackson led off with a double and Abraham Almonte followed with a walk.

After both runners then advanced a base on a wild pitch, the inning went downhill from there, as Holland struck out three of the next four batters, working around a two-out walk to Carlos Santana to load the bases, to escape the jam.

This road trip was defined by big hits and taking advantage of big situations, but Sunday was clearly not one of those days.
