Game Summary

In the 10th inning showdown, Bo and Josh Naylor both came up clutch, propelling the Cleveland Guardians to a thrilling 7-6 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday night.

Josh Naylor ignited the rally, leveling the score with a crucial RBI double, setting the stage for a remarkable family moment on National Siblings Day. With the bases loaded, Bo Naylor, who had earlier smashed a two-run homer in sync with his brother’s heroics, delivered a decisive single into right field off former Guardians reliever Bryan Shaw (0-1), completing Cleveland’s comeback from a 5-0 deficit.

Eli Morgan (1-0) notched the win as the Guardians soared to a 9-3 record, marking their best start since their impressive 11-1 run in 2002. Steven Kwan also contributed to the offensive onslaught with a homer for Cleveland.

Meanwhile, the White Sox stumbled to a dismal 2-10 record, plagued by a series of major injuries. Gavin Sheets emerged as a bright spot for Chicago, launching a three-run homer and tallying five RBIs.

Sheets’ third-inning blast off Cleveland starter Tanner Bibee initially propelled the White Sox to a commanding 5-0 lead for the second consecutive night. However, reminiscent of the previous game, the Guardians mounted a stirring comeback.

The Naylor brothers ignited the resurgence, narrowing the gap to 5-3 in the fourth inning with their back-to-back homers off White Sox starter Erick Fedde. Josh Naylor continued his hot streak with a mammoth 432-foot shot to center field, while Bo Naylor followed suit, sending Fedde’s pitch soaring over the center field wall.

Kwan’s fifth-inning homer further trimmed the deficit to 5-4, and Cleveland drew level in the sixth when pinch-hitter David Fry was plunked by a pitch with the bases loaded, courtesy of reliever Tanner Banks, forcing in a run.

Prior to the game, the White Sox received grim news as third baseman Yoán Moncada was ruled out for at least three months, and possibly the remainder of the season, due to a severe leg injury sustained while running to first base on Tuesday. Moncada’s injury compounded Chicago’s woes, as they had already lost key players – outfielder Luis Robert Jr. (hip flexor) and slugger Eloy Jimenez – to injuries during their initial road trip.
