Indians win streak ends at three, fall to White Sox

The longest winning streak of the 2013 season for the Cleveland Indians, has come to an end.

After winning the final two of a three game series against Houston, Cleveland knocked off division rival Chicago 3-2 on Monday night, with pitcher Justin Masterson picking up his fourth win on the season. Following Tuesday’s postponement, Cleveland’s third canceled game on the year, the Indians railed from three-run deficit to pull within a run of the White Sox on Wednesday.

Trailing by three, Drew Stubbs walked to start a sixth inning rally. After a Michael Brantley single to left, the Indians had runners on the corners with no outs. Jason Kipnis singled to right, scoring Stubbs and moving Brantley from first to third base.

Mark Reynolds, who leads the Indians in RBIs, flied out to right, scoring Brantley and bringing Cleveland to within a run of tying the game.

After Kipnis stole both second and third base, Nick Swisher struck out and Ryan Raburn flied out ending the threat.

Cleveland fell to 8-11 on the season and next takes on the Kansas City Royals in a four game series set to begin on Friday.
