Indians Vs. White Sox: Indians Try To Keep Up In High Scoring Game

The Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox are not being kind to the pitchers on the mound, even if they are Derek Lowe and Jake Peavy.

The White Sox put up four runs in the first inning off of Lowe on an RBI single by Paul Konerko, an RBI double by A.J. Pierzynski and a two-run single by Dayan Viciedo. The Indians answered in the top of the third inning on a three-run double by Michael Brantley that brought the Indians within one before Jason Kipnis' two-run homer to right-center gave the Indians a 5-4 lead.

The lead didn't last long as Konerko hit an RBI double to tie it at five before Alex Rios' RBI single and Viciedo's two-run homer gave the White Sox an 8-5 lead after three. Lowe lasted 2.1 innings, allowing eight runs on 10 hits.

And it is now only the bottom of the fourth inning. If runs being scored is what you live for, this is the game for you.
