Rodon solid again as White Sox beat Indians
CHICAGO (AP) — Rob Brantly smacked a three-run homer for his first American League hit, and rookie Carlos Rodon allowed one run through seven innings to lead the Chicago White Sox past the Cleveland Indians 7-4 on Tuesday night.
Jose Abreu went 3 for 4 — including his 26th homer and a double — to drive in two runs and help the White Sox win for the fifth time in six games. Trayce Thompson also had two RBIs.
Rodon (7-6) scattered five hits, struck out eight and walked one in his sixth straight quality start. He is 3-2 in that span while yielding eight earned runs in his last 41 innings.
The left-hander has put together the streak after his ERA peaked at 5.00 on Aug. 5, when he gave up four runs in 4 2-3 innings to Tampa Bay.
