PHOTO GALLERY: Cleveland Indians hammer Chicago White Sox in 13-2 Saturday victory
Mike Napoli, Juan Uribe and Tyler Naquin hit homers as the Indians pounded out 13 runs and 15 hits in a 13-2 win in front of 31,066 at Progressive Field on Saturday.
Napoli’s three-run homer in the first gave the Tribe all the cushion it would need, while Naquin fell a double shy of the cycle in reaching base five times (single, triple, homer, two walks). Juan Uribe added three hits and three RBI.
Danny Salazar, who entered the game leading the AL in ERA, K/9, hits/runs allowed, bWAR and more, allowed two runs in 6.2 innings, striking out seven. He’s 8-3 with a 2.23 ERA.
- Napoli’s 15 homers are a team-high
- Francisco Lindor had three hits, tying Boston’s Xander Bogaerts with a league-high 12 games of three or more hits
- Naquin’s four RBI were a career high and his three hits tied a career high
