CHICAGO — Heartbreak in Chicago.
The Indians held a late inning lead only to see it disintegrate in the bottom of the 8th inning. The White Sox took game one of the series, 5-4 courtesy of the big bat of slugger Adam Dunn.
Asdrubal Cabrera opened the Indians scoring in the 3rd inning when he doubled in Jason Kipnis. The Indians 1-0 lead evaporated when Chicago answered in the bottom of the 5th.
In the 6th inning, Russ Canzler ripped a two run shot for a 3-1 Indians lead. Dunn poked a solo shot to bring the White Sox within one run, 3-2 in the bottom of that frame.
In the bottom of the 8th inning, Dunn came to the plate with two men on. He delivered, and the South side of Chicago rejoiced. A three-run homer and that powered the White Sox to a 5-4 victory over the Indians.
The Indians got one run in the top of the 9th inning when Shin Soo Choo doubled in pinch runner Zeke Carrera.
Zach McAllister started and put together a promising outing. He went 6 innings and allowed 4 hits and 2 earned runs while striking out 7 batters. Indians and the White Sox play game 2 of their series on Tuesday night.
