White Sox Sweep the Indians
CLEVELAND — Fresh off their sweep of the Detroit Tigers, the Indians were riding high when they went to Chicago.
But Sunday night, they’re coming home with their tails tucked between their legs after getting swept by the White Sox.
Ubaldo Jimenez continues to struggle on the road. The big righty served up a three-run homer to red-hot Paul Konerko, and allowed seven runs in just four innings.
Johnny Damon smacked his first home run as an Indian — a three-run shot in the second inning.
But it was all Sox after that.
Orlando Hudson’s bases-clearing triple in the fifth inning made it 9-4.
White Sox won 12-6. They outscored the Tribe 35-to-16 in the three-game sweep.
Indians return home on Memorial Day to host the Kansas City Royals.
