White Sox’ 9-3 win reminds Indians not to forget about them in AL Central race

The Cleveland Indians have been asked all season ever since they we’ve been around first place, if they worry about the Detroit Tigers.

Manager Manny Acta and his players have said all along that you can’t forget about the Chicago White Sox, who can hit and pitch with anybody.

On Friday night, the Indians were shown why they have to worry about the Windy City teams as well in a 9-3 loss to Chicago at U.S. Cellular Field. Right-hander Jeanmar Gomez (3-3) struggled with his command, the Tribe’s lineup labored against rookie Jose Quintana and the White Sox put their power on display.

Cleveland just swept the Tigers at home during the week. But the American League Central-leading Indians (26-19) saw their lead over the second-place White Sox (24-22) trimmed to 2 1/2 games.

Coming into the 2012 season, Detroit was picked as the front-runner for this year’s Central Division title. The Tigers won the division by a 15-game margin over the Tribe last season and then went out and signed  free-agent slugger Prince Fielder. Chicago was not expected to be a factor, but the White Sox are sitting on the Indians heels nearly two months into the season.

The Indians’ offense struggled all night against White Sox lefty Jose Quintana (1-0), who was promoted from Triple-A Charlotte before the game. Quintana limited Cleveland to two runs on four hits in six innings.
