Talk about a long and busy day for a couple of ball clubs on Friday. Both the Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox score 29 runs and had 34 hits in a 19-10 affair all in regulation.
Trevor Bauer didn’t last long for the Indians after giving up six hits and five earned runs with just being able to get two batters out in the first inning. Two homers from Adam Dunn and Jeff Keppinger helped give the White Sox an early 5-0 lead, but they would eventually be outscored 19-5.
Here are some other amazing stats from the shootout:
- Only two other home runs were hit in the game; Tyler Flowers had a three-run HR in the fifth inning and Ryan Rayburn had a 2-run blast in the seventh inning.
- The Indians had 25 runners in scoring position, and brought 13 of them to home plate.
- Chicago used outfielder Casper Wells to pitch in the final inning, recording 16 pitches with a strikeout, gave up a walk, and no hits.
- Cleveland used six relievers in the game, who combined gave up the same number of runs and just one more hit than Bauer.
