The Chicago White Sox's bid for a three-game winning streak has fallen short. The Sox were defeated 6-3 by the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday night at U.S. Cellular Field. The loss drops the South Siders back to .500 at 12-12. Cleveland improves to 12-10 in victory.
White Sox starter Philip Humber did well to limit the damage, but hardly had a dominating effort. Humber walked six in six innings of work, but only allowed three earned runs. Humber also struck out six in the no-decision.
Adam Dunn homered for Chicago in the fourth to start the scoring. Carlos Santana answered for Cleveland in the fifth with a three-run homer. Cleveland would tack on one in the eighth to take a 4-3 lead and two in the ninth to reach the final margin.
