Error In Center Field Proves Costly As White Sox Edge Tribe

Last updated on Monday, July 25, 2011

(CLEVELAND, OH) - Ezequiel Carrera dropped a fly ball that allowed the Chicago White Sox to score two runs and beat the Cleveland Indians, 4-2.

With game tied at one in the sixth inning, Adam Dunn hit a fly ball to the warning track in center field.

Carrera circled underneath the looming pop-fly, looked up, stumbled a bit, then ducked as the ball ricocheted off his glove.

Omar Vizquel and Paul Konerko scored to give the sox a 3-1 lead.

The Indians would get a run back in their half of the sixth on a Travis Hafner RBI single.

Edwin Jackson turned it over to the White Sox bullpen after allowing two runs in six innings pitched.

Jackson hasn't lost to Cleveland since August of 2007 and is 9-0 against the Tribe since then.

Three relievers combined for four strikeouts in the last third of the game, and Sergio Santos picked up his twentieth save of the season.

For the second consecutive start, Justin Masterson was strong in a losing effort.

He four-hit the White Sox in seven innings pitched and struck out six.

The Indians are a game and a half behind the Detroit Tigers for first place in the division.

The Sox are four games back, and open a three game series tonight against the Tigers.
