Carlos Rodon was simply brilliant (click on link below) as the Sox won their second straight series over the A.L. Central-leading Indians, 3-0, in their last road game of the year.
The Sox’ young lefty pitched eight innings of shutout ball, allowing just two hits with a career-high 11 strikeouts for his eighth win of the year.
Carlos Sanchez drove in the first two runs on a single and a sac fly and Omar Narvaez, who collected a pair of hits on the day, singled in the third tally.
David Robertson came on in the ninth and struck out the side for his 36th save.
