Sox win big, still eliminated
CLEVELAND – Rookie Hector Santiago allowed one hit in seven shutout innings, and the White Sox beat Cleveland, 11-0, before they were eliminated in the AL Central race when Detroit won the division Monday night.
Santiago (4-1), who began the season as the Sox's closer, struck out a season-high 10 and allowed only Shin-Soo Choo's two-out single in the third.
With just their third win in 13 games, the second-place Sox briefly kept their playoff hopes alive. But about an hour after the game, the Sox, who collapsed down the stretch after being in first place for 63 straight days, saw their chances erased completely when the Tigers won, 6-3, in Kansas City.
