The Chicago White Sox won 7-0 in Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cleveland Guardians. Six runs came via homers from Jose Abreu, Josh Harrison, and Luis Robert. Dylan Cease had nine strikeouts in 5.2 and earned the win. The Sox bullpen continued their scoreless stretch to help lock down a victory for the visitors.

The New Cease

Dylan Cease stopped the Guardians in their tracks after an abysmal performance by the White Sox in Game 1 of the doubleheader. Cease, as he has been doing more recently, featured increased use of his slider. The righty struck out nine Cleveland hitters, six of which were on his slider. He held the Guardians scoreless through 5.2 innings, allowed five hits, and issued three walks.

Nearing a triple-digit pitch count, Cease labored through the sixth. He recorded two outs after surrendering the leadoff double to Jose Ramirez. The righty then walked two and exited the game with the bases loaded. Reynaldo Lopez, Kendall Graveman, and Matt Foster combined to record the final 10 outs.

Josh Harrison joined the festivities in the third with a solo shot to left field that put his team ahead 3-0.

The icing on the cake came in the eighth inning when Luis Robert’s fly ball down the right field line hit the fair pole for a three-run homer. That was the nail in the coffin and put the game out of reach 7-0.

Notes

The White Sox bullpen has not allowed a run in 16 consecutive innings.

The South Siders improved to 7-6 in July.
