Indians Win Fourth Straight, Pound White Sox 7-3; Three Takeaways

1. Big Night at the Plate

The Indians offense went up against Sox starter Lucas Giolito, and made the young Chicago pitcher look like a guy with an ERA that was closing in on eight runs a game.

They hit him early and often, and drove him out of the game after six innings, getting him for five runs on nine hits with two homers.

The two blasts came from Michael Brantley, a solo shot in the 3rd, and Jose Ramirez, who belted a two-run bomb in the 5th to make it a 5-1 game.

All in all it was as good as a night at the plate as you would expect against a young pitcher struggling to get outs, and in that respect the Indians didn’t let the fans at Progressive Field down.
