Chicago Sports Recap: 9/15/22

Chicago White Sox 8 – Cleveland Guardians 2

Highlights:  Elvis Andrus hit one of Chicago’s five home runs off rookie Hunter Gaddis, and backed up a pregame swipe at the Guardians, as the White Sox cut Cleveland‘s lead in the AL Central to three games with an 8-2 victory in a makeup game Thursday. Andrus connected in the fifth inning off Gaddis (0-2), who became the first Cleveland pitcher to allow five homers in a game since Luis Tiant in 1969. On Wednesday, Andrus raised some eyebrows by telling reporters he expected the first-place Guardians “to crumble, the closer we get.” Gavin Sheets hit a two-run homer in the second to start Chicago’s homer barrage against Gaddis, and Andrew Vaughn, Yoán Moncada and Yasmani Grandal joined Andrus by hitting shots off the right-hander. Lance Lynn (7-5) limited the Guardians to two run and six hits in 6 1/3 innings. The right-hander is 5-0 in his last seven starts. Read more at:  (AP)
