For the first time since their last World Championship in 1948, the Cleveland Indians have swept their division rival Chicago White Sox on the Southside of the Windy City in a four-game series. The Tribe would score three runs off ChiSox ace Chris Sale already defeating him for the second time in two starts this season. While Cleveland scored four runs in the ballgame, all they would essentially need is one run thanks to another masterful pitching performance by ace Justin Masterson. The IBI's Jim Berdysz shares his second thoughts...

Join the IBI's Sean Mahon as he recaps this classic pitcher's duel in the Windy City.
