After last night’s 12-1 victory, they came out tonight rather flat, despite a late effort in the ninth to fall to the White Sox 4-3.Adam Eaton got the Sox started in the fourth with a single to right, and Jose Abreu was safe at first after a fielder’s choice and throwing error from Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor. A sac-fly from Melky Cabrera scored Eaton, and the Sox led 1-0.In the home half of the fourth Ryan Raburn singled to center, and Carlos Santana followed with a double, moving Raburn to third. A sac-fly from Yan Gomes would tie the game 1-1, but that’s all the Indians would score that inning. Rob Brantly walked in the fifth, and Avisail Garcia singled. Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco’s wild pitch moved the runners up, and Micah Johnson’s infield single to third scored Brantley. Eaton hit into a fielder’s choice with a bobbled ball at second and the Indians could only get one out, allowing the Sox to get another run in putting them ahead 3-1. Shawn Armstrong was on the mound for the Indians to start the eighth and walked Trayce Thompson. Brantley extended the Sox lead to 4-1 with a double. The Indians did keep it interesting in the ninth with a one out double from Gomes to left off of David Robertson. An impressive at bat from Chris Johnson ended in a ball clearing the fence in center to cut the Sox lead 4-3, and Abraham Almonte singled to center to keep the rally going. Jerry Sands came up and popped out to give the Tribe two outs. The night ended with a disappointing pick off play at first with Jason Kipnis at the dish, as Robertson got Almonte leaning to end the game.“It look like Abe wanted to run,” Indians manager Terry Francona said. “We really wanted to let Kip (Kipnis) hit. . .that’s unfortunate.”Carlos Rodon allowed one run while pitching into the eighth inning for the White Sox. The starter is 3-0 with a 1.52 ERA in four starts and a relief appearance against the Tribe this year. Rodon (8-6) went 7.2 innings, allowing a run on six hits with a walk and four K’s.The Indians fall back to 73-74, and trail the Angels and Twins in the wild-card standings. The Tribe has alternated wins and losses in their last seven games.Tomorrow to wrap up the longstand the team will look to get back to .500 in the rubber match between RHP Josh Tomlin and LHP John Danks at 1:10pm. center_img Matt Loedelast_img read more

Planning Phase for Kenai River Ranch Property Nears End

Texas outplays Texas Tech for 34-13 win

first_imgLUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Malcolm Brown scored two rushing touchdowns, Johnathan Gray ran for another and Tyrone Swoopes threw for a score to lead Texas over Texas Tech 34-13 on Saturday night.Brown scored touchdowns of 3 yards and 1 yard, and Gray ran it in from 17 yard for the Longhorns (4-5, 3-3 Big 12), who got their sixth straight win over the Red Raiders.Swoopes completed 13 of 25 passes for 228 yards, hitting Jaxon Shipley for a 4-yard score.It was the first 100-yard rushing game for the Longhorns this season.John Harris finished with a career-high 165 yards receiving. It was his third game this season of 100-plus yards receiving.The loss assured Texas Tech (3-6, 1-5) a fifth straight losing Big 12 record with three conference games remaining.Texas Tech backup quarterback Pat Mahomes left the game after getting leveled by Quandre Diggs. True freshman walk-on Vincent Testaverde Jr., son of Heisman Trophy winner Vinny Testaverde, finished the game.Brown moved him into 12th place in school history for career yards rushing.The win keeps both teams in contention for a bowl but the road is more difficult now for the Red Raiders, who need to win out against Oklahoma in two weeks, Iowa State and Baylor. Texas plays West Virginia, Oklahoma State and TCU.De’Andre Washington finished with 97 yards on 16 carries for Texas Tech, which scored just one offensive touchdown.Testaverde came in after Mahomes got hit by Diggs and fumbled. Mahomes got up wobbly and was taken to the locker room, apparently for concussion testing.Mahomes started his first game in place of Davis Webb, who reinjured his left ankle in last week’s loss to TCU.Testaverde led the Red Raiders on a 75-yard drive, capped by a 6-yard touchdown by Kenny Williams. It was Williams’ first rushing touchdown of the season; he was the Red Raiders leading rusher in 2013 and 2012 but switched to linebacker to start this year.Defensive end Branden Jackson scored a touchdown for Texas Tech in the first quarter after Swoopes fumbled deep in Longhorn territory. It was the first fumble recovery for a touchdown for the Red Raiders since Will Smith in a win over Texas State last season.Texas Tech is now 1-12 in November games dating back to 2011.last_img read more
