Cleveland Guardians Score Two All-Star Starters, Lose to Chicago White Sox

Jose Ramirez and Steven Kwan will start for the American League in the All-Star Game on July 16.

The Guardians teamed up with the Milwaukee Brewers for a voting campaign, and it worked for both teams. Brewers catcher William Contreras and outfielder Christian Yelich made the starting lineup for the National League.

Cleveland has two All-Star starters for the first time since 2000, when they had Roberto Alomar and Manny Ramirez. Alomar missed the game with an injury, but so did Cal Ripken Jr., who was replaced by the Indians’ Travis Fryman.

Josh Naylor and Emmanuel Clase are solid bets to join Kwan and Ramirez in Arlington, Texas, for the Midsummer Classic.


The Guardians lost to the Chicago White Sox 8-2 last night at Progressive Field.

Gavin Williams made his first start of the season after recovering from an injured elbow. He lasted four innings and gave up five runs to take the loss.

The White Sox scored in the first on an RBI single by Andrew Vaughn. David Fry tied the game for Cleveland with a sacrifice fly in the third.

Chicago piled up five more runs in the middle innings, while starting pitcher Erick Fedde kept Cleveland off the scoreboard. Fedde (6-3, 3.13 ERA) has been a bright spot for the Sox, who are 38 games under .500.

Brayan Rocchio scored Cleveland’s other run by launching a solo home run to right field.

Fans sold out Progressive Field for the seventh time this year. They had a great time despite the loss, enjoying free Hawaiian shirts, cheap hot dogs, and a post-game fireworks display.


The Guardians and White Sox will entertain the holiday crowd at 1:10 p.m. Ben Lively (7-4) will start for Cleveland against Jared Shuster (1-0).
