Talbot pitches Indians past White Sox in series opener

CLEVELAND – A Mitch Talbot vs. Mark Buehrle matchup didn’t appear to be an ideal one for the Indians, but it worked out pretty well for the home team Friday night at Progressive Field.

Surprisingly enough, Talbot outpitched the White Sox ace, and the Indians won their second straight game, turning back Chicago, 6-2, in front of another sparse crowd (10,421 fans).
