White Sox look to forget drubbing as they face surging Guardians

The Guardians and Chicago White Sox are entertaining vastly different emotions heading into Friday's opener of a three-game series in Cleveland.

The Guardians appeared to be on the fast track to their third straight loss on Wednesday after Tigers left-hander Andrew Chafin struck out the first three batters he faced in the eighth inning. Luke Maile, however, advanced to first base on a wild pitch and the next seven batters reached as part of a six-run uprising, helping Cleveland rally to an 8-4 victory over Detroit.

"A strikeout that goes to the backstop. How many times do you hear me say, 'Keep playing, keep playing'?" Guardians manager Terry Francona said. "That was kind of the ultimate example."
