The Chicago White Sox are 0-7 at Progressive Field this season.

.314

Corey Kluber was the runaway MVP of the game, with a .314 WPA, which was almost four times as much as the next-closest player — teammate Andrew Miller (.081 WPA).

Daniel Palka and Omar Narváez hit back-to-back home runs in the sixth inning, marking the first time all season Kluber gave up two longballs in one inning.

If Mike Clevinger strikes out four more batters this season, Cleveland will boast the first quartet of 200-K pitchers in a single season. Kluber passed the 200 mark on Tuesday, making Cleveland the fourth team ever to have a trio of 200-K pitchers.

Jason Kipnis’ home run in the fifth inning was just the eighth career homer Carlos Rodón has surrendered to a lefty.

At only one point in the game did the White Sox have as much as a 50% chance of winning: After Cleveland’s José Ramírez grounded out to end the first inning.
