CHICAGO (AP) — Dylan Cease worked his way through five shutout innings, and the Chicago White Sox beat Aaron Civale and the Cleveland Indians 2-0.
Cease walked the leadoff man four times and hit a batter, but wiggled out of trouble each time.
The Indians went 1 for 8 with runners in scoring position and left 10 runners on base, continuing a season-long problem and wasting a terrific start by Civale.
Cleveland played without manager Terry Francona and hitting coach Ty Van Burkleo.
Francona missed his sixth straight game while addressing a gastrointestinal issue he has been dealing with for months. The team announced before the series opener that Van Burkleo had opted out of the 2020 season because of the coronavirus.
