CHICAGO– The Cleveland Indians set a new franchise record for consecutive wins with their victory Thursday night. The Tribe beat the White Sox in Chicago, 11-2.

Indians ace Corey Kluber gave up two solo shots, making the score 4-2 after one inning. But he turned it around for 13 strikeouts.
Later, Lindor and Erik Gonzalez also hit home runs. That gave the Tribe a 7-2 lead.
In the seventh, Greg Allen got his first career MLB homer to score Lindor.
The Tribe beat the White Sox on Wednesday, 5-1, for 14 wins in a row. Carlos Carrasco pitched the complete game and had nine strikeouts.
